    Does anyone know of a good source for reproduction triangular or oblong powder flasks. I've found one in Europe, but the shipping will cost more than the flask. This is the type I'm referring to: 16th c. flasks

    This is the source I've found: oblong
    triangular

    It ain't cheap, but these folks make good quality stuff. Scroll down to:

    Powder Flask / Voyageur Flask (above)
    Handmade by Peter Goebel. Historic reproduction.
    Copied from an original, our flask dates from the 17th to 18th centuries. Made from non-sparking copper with a friction fit lid attached with a chain. Measures 4" wide by 5 and 1/2 tall. A great alternative to a horn.
    Powder Flask / Voyageur Flask: $145.00
