Hunting Set by Tim Crosby & Marc Hameladmin
This Virginia style horn and strap is by Tim Crosby. The horn features a screw tip and an antler collar with a horn tip. There is also a turned antler finial on the butt cap. The Tim Crosby patch knife has a turned antler handle and a bolster from a recycled pipe axe bowl. Tim also created the accouterments; a turned pewter powder measure with a turned wooden tip, a horse hair brush, and a work hardened copper vent pick, both with turned antler handles.
The striking hunting bag is by Marc Hamel. The body is 2-3 oz cowhide and the flap is lined 4-5 oz cowhide. The styling is early 19th century with an English influence: perhaps from either Virginia, the Carolinas or Savannah. The bag style goes well with the horn. The cross and sunburst on the flap reflects John 8:12 I am the light of the world. Whosoever follows Me will never walk in darkness but have the light of life. Marc also made the matching knife sheath with scalloped welt for the Tim Crosby knife. The buckle and copper accoutrement hanger were provided by Bob Hill.
If you attend the auction take the opportunity to handle this set. It is a great combination of the work of a long time CLA artist, Tim, and a talented new artist, Marc.
