Bow Case & Quiver – Otter
This striking Bow Case & Quiver will make a perfect addition to your collection! The crafter made the Quiver from an Otter Pelt, including the tail. He backed the tail with Red Wool sewn with Braintanned Deerskin Leather Lacing. Then he trimmed the opening with Navy Blue Wool also sewn with Braintanned Deerskin Leather Lacing. He attached the Quiver to a natural branch covered with Red Wool with Braintanned Deerskin Leather Lacing .
The crafter made the Bow Case from Braintanned Buffalo Hide. A strip of Red Wool laced with Braintanned Deerskin Leather Lacing holds the top closed. Matching the Otter Quiver, a flap lined with Red Wool hangs from the open end. The crafter trimmed the opening with more Navy Blue Wool stitched with Braintanned Deerskin Leather Lacing.
Inside the Braintanned Buffalo Hide Bow Case, you will find a simple wood Bow. The center features a Leather wrapping accented with Mink Fur. You will also see hand-painted designs and a natural Turkey Feather bound with a Red Fluff Feather attached with Round Leather Lacing attached to one end. The string on the Bow is nylon. We do not think you can use this Bow to shoot as it is too brittle.
The Otter Fur Quiver holds 5 Arrows. The crafter created the Arrows from wooden Arrow Shafts. He added real White Turkey Feather fletchings and painted them with stripes to resemble wild Turkey Feathers. Three of the Arrows come with reproduction stone Arrowheads. The remaining two come with metal Arrowheads. The crafter attached the Arrowheads to the shafts with Imitation Sinew.
Both sections attach with Braintanned Deerskin Leather Lacing to a 2.75″ wide Strap of Red Wool. The crafter added two drops he made with four strips of Otter Fur to the Strap. He bound the drops at the top with Red Wool which he wrapped with strands of Greasy Yellow Pony Beads.
The Quiver section measures 24″ long x 8″ wide at the open end. The Tail drop measures 17″ long. The longest Arrow measures 30″ long, but they vary slightly in length.
The Bow Case section measures 44″ long x 3″ wide. The wool-lined drop measures 17″ long.
Both sections attach to a Red Wool Strap with Deerskin Leather Lacing. The Strap measures 2.75″ wide x 42″ long not including the 25″ long extensions that hang down.
