                           EDWARDIAN TOBACCO POUCH

SHIPPING AND HANDLING R65.00

                                   

THIS IS A VERY INTERESTING AND COLLECTABLE TOBACCO POUCH THAT WAS ROLLED UP KEEPING THE TOBACCO IN THE BOTTOM SECTION. IF YOU ARE A SERIOUS COLLECTOR DONT MISS THIS ONE !! I THINK IT IS EDWARDIAN OR COULD BE VICTORIAN ?  LEATHER, ADORNED WITH FRINGING, TASSLES AND A LONG LENGTH OF HANDMADE CHAIN STITCHING WHICH WAS ARRAINGED INTO A PLEASING DESIGN AND SEWN INTO PLACE WITH TINY HAND STITCHES FROM THE INSIDE. NOW THIS IS WHERE IT ALL BECOMES VERY FACINATING....... AS THIS POUCH WAS MADE FROM THE BLADDER OF AN ANIMAL, QUITE POSSIBLY A BUFFALO BLADDER WHICH WERE USED AS TOBACCO POUCHES AND WATER CONTAINERS, NEEDING NO STITCHING AS THE NATURAL SHAPE FORMS A USEFUL CONTAINER. THE BLADDERS WERE CLEANED AND POUNDED INTO THE REQUIRED SHAPE THEN "CURED" THE NEXT STEP WOULD BE TO CUT THE TOP INTO THE DESIRED SHAPE AND DECORATE. THE LEATHER HAS NO DAMAGE, BUT IS A LITTLE DRY AT THE BASE DUE TO OLD AGE, WHICH SADLY HAPPENS TO ALL OF US !! THE BRAIDING NEEDS A STITCH OR TWO IF YOU FEEL THE NEED. LENGTH 28cm NOT INCLUDING THE TASSLES, TOP WIDTH 16cm.
