Huge early 18th Century Wheellock POWDER FLASK - wheellock spanning key - RARE!

Up for sale:

a very rare 18th Century Powder Horn for a wheellock rifle.

This flask can be placed in the first quarter of the 18th Century (1700 - 1725).

This horn has been made in Germany or in the Low Countries (Netherlands).

It has a large size of 330 mm (13 Inches) and the maximum width is 110 mm (4.3 Inches).

The body has been made out of pressed horn (cowhorn - non endangered species).

It shows nice flattened sides and carved lining. Simple but charming!

The bottom plate is made out of wood which is decorated by carving dots, crosses and lines.

Thespout has been turned with several rims.

There is a spanning key for a wheellock rifle mounted into the horn. These keys were used for winding up the spring mechanism of the wheellock.

Nowadays these ancient flasks hardly show up on the open marked....this one came out of a legacy of a Dutch family and has been in their collection for many years.

Condition: wooden bottom plate shows wear and battle marks (see pictures), I think this adds extra charm to this 300 years old flask!

The horn is in good condition but has a crack near the wheellock spanning key and some ancient repairs.

This horn could do with a good clean and become a great wallhanger for the powder flask collector or those of you who are lucky enough to own a wheellock rifle!

The other powder horn in the picture is not included but offered in another sale.

There is PRICE! COMBINED SHIPPING IS POSSIBLE, SAVE SOME $ !


Payment within 3 days after end of sale!


Items will be shipped within 4 working days after end of sale.
