Antique nautical, maritime, late 18th Century, George III period, British colonial North American, sailor's carved coconut “Bugbear” gun powder flask, carved in relief, with two oval medallions.

MEASUREMENTS: Height: from top of the nozzle to bottom of the base: 16.2 cm (6.38 inches).

CONDITION: In good condition, showing the age and usage, with a dark patina. The two suspension loops are not the same so one must be a later replacement. No cracks or repairs.
