A SCOTTISH HORN PRIMING POWDER FLASK
An interesting 19th Century Scottish Horn Powder Flask used for priming the pan or alternatively a snuff flask/mull of flattened horn form - take your pick! Purchased in Edinburgh by myself 25 years ago and was then described as a priming flask. It certainly makes a sensible priming flask due to the shape of the nickel silver charger which rotates to pick up a set amount of powder and then held over the pan. The brass hinged bottom cover is bone or horn. Nice quality, well made, 4" in length and very tactile!
A VERY RARE WALKER PATENT CYLINDRICAL GUNPOWDER MAGAZINE
This a very rare original early 19th century Walker Patent Cylindrical Powder Magazine patented 7 September 1810 (No. 3373) by James Walker. Made from copper, it has a circular aperture with copper liner beneath a copper lockable lid. It still has the main japanned tinned iron cylindrical powder cannister inside which is complete with original threaded brass cap. Both the main magazine and the circular copper lid covering the circular aperture stamped ‘WALKER PATENTEE WAPPING ‘. Copper locking catch to accommodate a padlock. Folding copper carrying handle. The usual few dents due to handling but good condition overall. Measures 8" high, 8.5" diameter.
