Default Powder flask with shoulder strap for ID.

Powder flask with shoulder strap for ID.
This set has some signs of age .
I would like to receive opinions about origin.
My guess is Africa but I m really not sure.

Some signs of age ! ? I would agree... The entire item is about to fall apart especially the spout and straps... I'm sure it is salvageable.
It looks African and I thought Tuareg. The tribal geometry on the leather work is stunning...

Whilst probably impossible to find another example as they are all different here are some other decorated leather items of Tuareg design..

I can not confirm Tuareg, but IMHO looks certainly North African. The powder cut off lever STYLE is much the same as those found on some Moroccan flasks. Nice and interesting piece.
