Powder Flask

I was sent this leather powder flask to make up a leather strap so that it could be carried over ones shoulder. I made the strap 1 1/4" wide and tapered it down to 1" add some tooling. I was asked to looking it over and make sure it was sound. I worked in a few coats of bee's wax. I'm not sure of the maker of this flask but they did a fine job.
