My sister-in-law has insisted for over 40 years that I should make hunting bags and market them to women for purses. I keep telling her no woman would pay half of what a goofy old man with a beard would pay for one of them. ;) ;D

thanks: you could market them as designer bags and charge for it: the flint that was in the bag appears to be a French style and not English: it's not often you find bags for sale at flea markets: horns yes but not bags: even though it is not very old it was still nice to find it: sk

Nice purse --- ;D ::) 8). Like others have said you find horns but not many pouches - good find.
