394 Old Tibetan Khampa Nomad's Case

Antique Tibetan Khampa Nomad's Bullet Case 

Collected from Tibet in 2007 from the Barkhor sellers

Used by Khampa Nomads of Eastern Tibet

Leather and ornate Tibetan silver

The red bead *might* be coral but I am not sure.

Leather hanger attached - to allow the piece to hang from the wearer's waist belt.

Rare relic of a vanishing lifestyle

Silver purses and flint lighters from the vanishing lifestyle are still available - even I have a few of those. But this is the only bullet case that I have seen and finding another - either in a store or online - is highly unlikely

Estimated to be from the early 1900s
