Gunpowder Flask

$ 115.00

Decorated gunpowder flask, Moroccan, early 20th century.

The body of this powder flask was made in Germany, while a Moroccan soldier added the pounded copper and tin decoration.  The inside of the neck shows caked-on remnants of the gunpowder.  It is possible that this piece’s origins stem from Germany’s interventions in Morocco which led to the two “Moroccan crises” of 1905 and 1911.
