I bought this canteen at an estate sale. The person I bought it from didn't know much about it except that it is old.
It's a beautiful piece, handmade leather strap with decorative punch out desighns.
The canteen has some kind of fur, it's pretty soft, I don't know what kind of animal it's from. The guy I bought it from said beaver, but I think he was guessing.
The inside of the canteen is wood. It looks like something you'd see in a museum.
I am having a yard sale this weekend and I was going to try an sell it, but since I have no idea what it's worth, I'm afraid I'll cheat myself.
Does anyone have any idea what it could be worth? What era it's from? I looked online and a lot of the wooden canteens were from the mid to late 1800's. Although I didn't see any as pretty and fancy as this one. I'm new to this site and I don't see a way to post pictures, if there is a way could someone tell me? Thank you.
