This Flask can be found, pictured and described in the text,  "The Powder Flask Book" by Ray Riling. Pages 351-354, image #831. This is an EXTREMELY rare, and very hard flask for the Colt collector to obtain. They saw hard use, and generally have open seams or broken plungers. This one has perfect seams, and a function powder plunger dispenser. This model followed the 1st model Walker flask and continued for several years  servicing as Riling says, many other Colts. Through the Dragoon era etc...

This powder flask was fashioned from a Cow Horn, in Frontier fashion, and is identified by maker/owner. This was typical of the Powder Horn fashioned on the far western frontier, like Colorado Territory. Cow Horns were plentiful, and the spring top powder release appears to be factory made. Probably from a broken or destroyed metal flask.

The maker scratched his name and location on one side of the horn.

" Made By G. S. Sewall , Col. Ty."

An interesting piece of Frontier History, and part of the high plains mystique of Colorado Territory in the Percussion era.

PRICE $750
