I have two large Moroccan powder flasks in my collection. One is covered in scrimshawed camel bone and has engraved silver escutcheons containing coral and turquoise stones. The fill spout is camel bone. The second powder flask is covered in engraved silver with flower shaped escutcheons containing coral stones. The entire surface also contains silver rivets, and the fill spout is also camel bone. The workmanship on both flasks is very fine. Can you fellow collectors give me your opinions/any info on these flasks? Thank you!
