Circa 1860s. This set is an extremely rare surviving complete example of an Indian quiver with the bow and one damaged arrow. The quiver itself is made of animal hide. The leather is still supple in many spots and rigid in others. It is sewn with sinew. The quiver is complete with separate sections for the bow and arrows. The quiver is in nice condition. There are still fringe at the end of the piece. There are some areas of loss and holing in the leather. There are also period repairs to the quiver, which alone measures around 44 inches long. The bow is of simple design made from one piece of shaped wood. There is a hide string attached to the bow, which could be the original. The bow has typical signs of age with some minor expanding along the grain, and a small crack at one end. It is still very stable. Measures 46 inches long. There is one damaged arrow in the quiver. The arrow has wear. It is a metal point also attached with sinew. The feathers are lacking but some of the red paint is still present. This example measures 22.5 inches long. Good overall, leather shows some holes and is brittle.
