19th Century Tibetan Flint Striker

$680

About

Historically most Tibetan men wore flint pouches. A flint pouch has a compartment to hold a shard of flint and a dull metal blade at its bottom for striking the flint to create sparks for fire. The leather pouches are usually plain and utilitarian, but this exquisite example is elaborately decorated in silver. It is mounted on a custom stand.
