Hauv Yaum Tooj Liab | Antique Hmong Copper Priming Flask
Hauv Yaum, also called Huj Yum — used for priming a flintlock. Traditionally worn on the neck. Circa late 1800s to early 1900s. Also includes the neck string and hno meej tseeb (flashhole pick) — used to clear out the qhov meej (flashole) of a flintlock if it is clogged. These are very rare to come by, especially on this beautiful and in this great of shape.
Provenance is Sam Neau, Laos. Everything shown in photos is original to acquired shape. The string is evidently newer–not as old as the hno meej tseeb and hauv yaum–as it feels of synthetic material.
As with all antiques we sell, the pictures you see are the actual antique you will receive—there is only one available.
