Squirrel gun pouch
This pouch was made for gunmaker Jack Hansberry for use with a squirrel rifle. The body is made of pigskin and the strap is cowhide. The bag has a fringed welt, rolled bindings, ticking-lined flap and an interior pocket on the back wall. The flowers and vines design, burned into the leather, were inspired by paintings on the stock of a well-known trade gun from the 1760's made by John Bumford of London. This bag was featured on the Contemporary Makers Blog (http://contemporarymakers.blogspot.com/2013/06/hunting-pouch-by-eric-ewing-for.html).
