Partly Painted Quiver


Hourglass type steppe quivers after Magyar artifacts

Quiver with custom smaller size painting.
Base quiver fits IX-XIth century reconstructions. It could contain iron parts and antler parts. There are several Magyar finds for such in huge variations. It is a likely reconstruction for Magyar reenactment, but we know that some graves contained such parts in the Caucasus and in Scandinavia (Birka) as well. 

All quivers are custom-made items. Preparation time of the quiver may take 3-4 weeks. We don't have quivers on stock, quivers made after order is placed. 

If you would like to customize your quiver, choose style of iron or antler parts, order a custom painting, mouth covering part or quiver belt to it, please contact us via Facebook Messenger. We aren't able to do the decorations for the antler parts.
