Default Show us your Powder flask

I noticed very few threads about powder flasks and bullet containers.
Do you have some nice Ottoman / Persian stuff to share?

As this subject and the items that will be discussed here are more weapons related and not actually weapons themselves I am moving this thread to the Ethnographic Miscellania forum.

Best,
Robert

Dear Stelio & Rajesh,

Thanks, they are great stuff.
I will post tonight a palaska, a Moroccan primer flask and a Mughal powder flask.
Rajesh, I think your first one is Moroccan (I'm sure in fact).

Best,
Kubur

You have a coin dated from 1336/ 1917 on it.
So the powder flask should be from 1917 or a little bit later.

Here I post two bullet containers, Ottoman, Bulgarian I think.
Tomorow the powder flasks...
For the muskets and matchlock, I think you should open a thread on
Indian matchlock, another on Arabian longuns and may be another one on Ottoman muskets. I will try to fill the threads if Ihave something to put in...

Default ottoman grease carrying case photos

My opinion from a little bronze boxes is a ottoman crease carrying cases and the other is a powder measure.

A type reputedly based on a camel scrotum. Whether or not the origin is apocryphal , it does lend itself to easier refill, and has a larger capacity than many other designs.

Default A FEW MORE

Was going to wait before showing these but the thread is growing...............
By the way Berkley what about a full length of that Jezail..............
Assuming the pics line up ..
#1 Omani Wooden Flask
#2 Brass Arabian/North African
#3 Omani Talahiq Silver with gold decoration
#4 Silver Indo/Arab Primer flask
#5 Omani/Arabian Copper with brass decoration
#6 Omani with silver decoration
#7 Indian Barutdan...the cork of course is not original!! I should also add that this item is not here yet and the pic is the sellers hence the small size. Once it arrives I will post a better pic

Enjoy

hello everyone. I have not been Posting or starting new Treads here on the Forum for a long time. So I need to get back into the Party.
Those are some really nice powder and bullet containers posted above. Thanks for sharing.
Here is my collection of Ethno powder and bullet containers. I can describe each, but most of them will be familiar to you.

Bandook: That is a good idea. If all of us on this Tread will post pics of their Ethnographic firearms, I believe we could all enjoy a good time. There's not that many of us that are interested in the guns. Most are interested in the blades and armour (I don't blame them). My special area of interest are the Balkan/Ottoman/Turkish/Greek, etc. flintlock firearms. Some I have have been restored to firing condition. I've only posted a couple in the past, but have many more if you are all interested. Would also like to see your guns! What do you all think? Thanks, Rick.

Woaw, Omani powder flask, Ottoman belts...Just so beautiful
I add
One Ottoman powder flask with a stamp
Probably for the silver parts (please see the thread about algerian bishaq)
One primer flask from Afghanistan
One powder flask from Pakistan, probably Mughal
One Ottoman powder measure
One Ottoman bullet box
One Moroccan primer flask...
BUT after the thread on the Kohl flasks, I wonder if my primer flask is not in fact a khol flask...What do you think Khanjar?
All the best,
Kubur

Default Kohl or Primer??

Hi Kubur,
I assume you are referring to the last pic that you show? As you do not show size of the item, or if there is a "wand" inside, I can not comment on what it actually is. IF there is a wand inside then it is a Kohl pot. The loops on the outside would perhaps suggest that it IS a Kohl but then they could also be for a suspension cord I suppose.

I would certainly be very interested!

Hi Norman! How have you been? Yes, I've been away too long.
Those two Greek bullet containers are really nice. The Greek specimens always seem to bring more $ than their Turkish counterparts.
I own a lot of Ethno guns, many in restored shooting condition which some of the Forum members might find interesting. So I guess there is no time like the present. So I'll post the first one today in the Ethno Arms section.
Do you still have that Scottish Snaphaunce? Thanks, Rick.

Hi Berkley. Thanks for the Link. I have some catching up to do.
Since you brought up Jazail, I'll start with that one. Thanks, Rick.

I think mine is a Barut Dan. Some say Persian, others say Afghan.
I wonder whether those filed grooves are just decoration or some kind of mark.

Nice flask Fernando. How big is it?
I THINK that the marks are only decoration as I have seen similar on other flasks.

Default Powder Flask or something else

This ended on eBay recently, I only submitted a nominal bid and didn't win it. I am not entirely sure what it is. Has anyone seen something similar?
