28087Re: Historical quiver construction
- Dec 6, 2010Excellent source. I think the crosshatching is actually leather as there is some identical for the saddle belt under the horse, I doubt that would be basketwork, so I think it is leather that that serves to reinforce the quiver at the top and bottom.
But how would you interpret the rounded bottom in the illustration? Is it a typical flat bottom for a tube quiver, or does it suggest a flattened quiver body instead of a tube? A picture of yours would be helpful.
