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

Hi Richard

Not yet. I just sent payment yesterday. So should receive it by late next week. I'll post it in the Photos section.

Peter Goebel's work is very high quality. I own several pieces made by him. Even though this is an older thread, I appreciate that the information was posted about this flask he makes. I have contacted him to inquire about one. I have been looking for one of this style for a while now.

Interesting post & subject I have made the same time period flasks & patrons, if never the triangular sorts . The Viking sword pics are great they look ungainly but clearly they appealed to the time period . Be interesting to see Peter Goebles offerings . I might produce flasks less bother to ship than guns these days I think Peter had or bought a English lock musket of my make made at a village in Mass a good thirty years ago . always curious where my products end up .
Regards Rudyard

I'me unclear but I think Peter Gobels had ' Goose bay works shops' he or Tom Brown its been many years. I sold him stamps he brobably did F & I at Fort Niagara with the' Detachment Chamble ' French marine Artillery group the flask looks OK servicable but since there seemed no set patterns they would all vary & differ .I am no authority mostly I made stag Horn sorts or Horn ones with thin iron caps brazed . So long a it looks like the old ones its bound to' pass Muster' but aught perhaps to look more folksy than perfect all being hand made .Well the dead stags had a hand in them too or since the common deer shed antlers annually they needn't be dead too provide many flask bodies stag carves nicely & if debarked & shone is perfect for engraving using traditional Leda & the Swan ect motives .
.Regards Rudyard

Can't believe this Thread is three years old already. Where has the time gone ??? Here's a pic of the early style horn Larry made for me. It allows for either a horizontal or a vertical cord/strap carry. I wanted a horn that would look appropriate for early to mid 17th Century, but would also look right with the matchlock/wheellock period. At least in my imagination. LOL A short, stubby type horn.

I inquired about a flask from Peter Goebel (pictured above) as we were discussing flasks in this thread. He told me he was ten weeks behind, but I received an invoice today (ahead of the forecasted wait). I paid the invoice and eagerly await the flask. I am thankful for honest craftsmen like Mr. Goebel.
