Content Description: 

Long brown shot pouch with two compartments made from a single piece of brown leather, folded, and stitched around the open side and bottom with leather thong over-case stitching. Originally, the pouch was divided longitudinally by stitching to accommodate two different gauges of shot; this stitching is now missing. Spouts are formed by folding leather back upon itself for added stiffening. Two carved wooden stoppers are attached by thongs to the carrying strap which is designed to be slung over the shoulder.
