Buffalo Hair Bow and Quiver Set


   This buffalo bow quiver set is likely Cheyenne or Crow.  The set is made of a recycled buffalo robe, which was partly eaten of its hair by wool moths.  The construction is of an early style where one case provided a place for both the bow and arrows. 

   The case has fringe of buffalo with hair and the top of the case has folded-over hide.  Although the case is sewn with black thread, the early robe repairs are of sinew, showing this set is recycled.

   The bow appears to be chokecherry with double nocks at each end.  The arrows have turkey feather fletchings and red with a black band owner's markings.  Both arrows match and have lightning blood grooves.
