394 Antique Tibetan Khampa Nomad's Bullet Case


[No bullets - only 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
