Tiny Shot Pouch - 18th Century

Tiny Shot Pouch - 18th Century


A small leather Revolutionary War era shot pouch with its original wooden stopper. Similar shot pouches can be see in the Collector’s Illustrated Encyclopedia of the American Revolution by Neumann p227. Shot pouches like this one were used to carry large shot which was loaded with the ball (“buck and ball”) to increase the effectiveness of the load. Its small size allowed it to be tucked in the belt or pouch for quick access. There is some shot still left inside this pouch and it is included in the price. 

It is 4" long to the top of the pouch and 5.25" including the hand-carved stopper.
