    The top opening of the conical section is 45 x 28mm and when I squeeze it to a round shape the diameter looks to be about 38mm. the bottom hole is only 25 x 15mm and about 20mm in diameter when sqeezed round (hope this is making sense) Length from top to bottom of the cone section is only 100mm. The strap piece is about 200mm long including the piece surrounding the cone. The slot is about 35 x 6mm and whatever originally went through it did so at a slant.

    Oops, sorry I didn't post the measurements quick enough, but as you can see it cannot be a holster although it kind of looks like one.

    Hello Tom,
    Any markings what so ever?
    It appears to be part of a larger item. No stud for the hole, possibly also attached by the smaller strap. Maybe an accessory for a saddle? Maybe to carry a sword while on horseback?

    It's easy to recognise when you're landed gentry like what I am chaps.

    That's a leather hunting horn case, and a nice one at that.

    Tally ho!, Ned.

    No Ralph, no markings whatsoever. For a while I thought it might be something where a flag pole sits in, but I have no idea.

    Okay Ned I see now, thanks for the answer. Could it be military? No, I guess not. Silly question really....

    Hi Tom,

    The belt buckle attaches to the huntsman's saddle and then the lower balancing strap is attached to the girth strap or 'cinch'. There would normally be another case on the other side that contains wire cutters and perhaps even a flask.

    Yonder he goes, Ned.
