Gourd Canteen (USA)
Great for trekking, this historically correct gourd
canteen features a wooden neck with cork stopper and
genuine rawhide reinforcement. Includes a leather
carrying strap, and is lined with beeswax inside and out. These were documented to be in use by the Missouri State Guard, some Texas
cavalry serving in the the Trans-Mississippi, and Texas State Troops during the Civil War. Made in the U.S.A. Measures approximately 6-1/2" wide, 9" high (including cork) and 4-1/2" 'deep'. No two canteens are exactly the same.
