CLA Auction Item: EARLY 19TH CENTURY HUNTING POUCH SET By Lawrence Fiorillo, Todd Hambrick, Casey McClure
Dimensions: 8 ½” wide x 9” high
Lawrence Fiorillo, Todd Hambrick and Casey McClure have donated this great looking Hunting set with a homespun air to this year’s auction. Created around a bark tanned, ample sized hunting pouch this rig is loaded with fine touches. The finely fringed trim on the bag, the rolled edge and the lined flap show Larry’s leather working skills. The leather strap has a rawhide lined sheath for Casey’s hand forged knife.
The knife on the pouch strap is always a nice feature. Casey’s knife is exceptional, a finely forged, antler handled working knife in a useful size for all around work (and razor sharp, too).
Todd Hambrick’s horn brings this whole set together and gives it just the right touch of frontier art. Although the art is period primitive it is well executed. Fine details abound in this set; note the wrapping on the ends of the horn strap, the poured pewter bolster on the knife, the hand forged buckle and the “hair” fringe on the bag.
This is a perfect set for a Southern Mountain rifle, an early fur trade percussion rifle or a big old meat on the table smoothbore. The CLF is proud to present this at auction.
