Default Leather bound cartridge and powderflask

My newest addition, a leather combined cartridge holder and powderflask.
Similar to the one posted by Michael (post 60). It is in fine condition with very little loss on the leather or overall structure.
The powderflask was most likely used for the fine meal powder which was inserted into the powderpan.

Spanish Artillery researcher Jorge Vigon attributes gun paper cartridges directly to Henri II of France. But IIRC, catholics complained of protestants Landsknechts using latin bibles for cartridges at the sack of Rome 1527.
