Leather cordite carrier, 1900

An early and very large leather cordite or shell carrier, the cylindrical case with a pair of looped handles, with a rich, original patina to the leather. Embossed ‘J.A.H’ with a single arrow for the War Department and ‘N’ indicating that this carrier was made for naval use, the body is lined with heavy gauge canvas.

English, circa 1900.

Height: 29 inches (74 cm)
Diameter: 13½ inches (34 cm) including handles.

Cordite buckets were flash-proof carriers, usually cork lined for the purposes of transporting explosive charges or shells, and today are often re-purposed as stick or umbrella stands.
