Two unusally fine variants, the first South Tyrol, ca. 1550. On this sample, even the back of the staghorn body is polished bright, as is the case with my flask dated 1565. The second completely of embossed and gilt brass, Augsburg, ca. 1560, the right lower mount containing a ball reservoir, the belt hook missing from the back.
Both preserved in the Victoria & Albert Museum London.

Best,
Michael
