A late 17th Century English antique leather costrel of unusually large size.

Provenance – From the contents of Doughton Manor, Gloucestershire, England. The house was originally constructed in 1594 (see the image in the gallery).

The costrel was used as a flask for the carriage of water or other liquids.

Made from hand-stitched leather and of typical form. The shoulders pierced by a thong and the main body retaining traces of pushed decoration.

The leather has developed a lovely patina and hardness over the passage of time.

Condition – Please refer to the images. There is surface wear commensurate with age and an age-related minor tear to one corner. A further detailed condition report is available upon request.
