Default Powder flask

Hello,

here is a old, nice powder flask, made of a stag's antler.
Probably not military...
It is nicely carved and dated.
With (some what faded) antique warrior on a horse, with shield and sword.
And a (clearer) floral carving on the other side.
The date is on the base under the warrior, and I think it says 1595.
I am still on the move in Portugal, so all I can provide you is its weight ;300 gr.
Measures can't be given at the moment, but my guess is like 20 cm high.
