Wheellock Pistol Holster, German, ca. 1630
Cylindrical shape with flared top, constructed of wood, lined with linen and then covered with dark brown leather. Flat iron base cap with double incised line decor; the top of leather with matching double line decor. Reverse with a pair of loops for mounting on a belt (one loop an old replacement). Three pairs of small holes at the top, probably for the attachment of strings or thongs (now lacking) to secure the pistol. Leather stitched along the full length of the side, 100% intact. Leather with age cracks, a few worm holes, and three small spots worn through on the reverse. Typical military holster of the Thirty Years War. These original holsters are far more scarce than the pistols themselves and rarely survive. Overall length 18 1/4". Fits the wheellock pistol FP1447.
