Persian Powder Flask from Camel Scrotum Leather

A very unusual powder flask made from a camel's scrotum and penis sheath. It is stitched together similar to a baseball with what appears to be sinew. There are patterns and textures embossed into the skin, and there appears to be Islamic calligraphy as well. This piece retains all of it's original hardware including the chain, belt clip, and end cap. Ca 1850- 1880 This unique flask measures 13.75" X 4.25" and weighs 9 ounces.
