This old set of pygmy quiver and arrows have seen a lot of use. When hunting, the leather quiver would have been worn high on the back. The cap comes off easily and the upper portion of the quiver is bent to allow easy access to the arrows. The metal tips of the 5 arrows are worn and broken with only 1 showing its original shape and barbs. Each arrow has a plant binding around the end with a notch for the bow string. This rare set is a true ethnographic artifact of the African pygmy hunting culture.

The quiver is 27 inches long with the cap on, and the arrows range from 21 to 23 inches long.
