Hegira c. 956–957 / AD c. 1550
Damast, gold embroidery
This bow quiver was in the collection of Archduke Ferdinand II of Tyrol (1529–1595) at Ambras Castle near Innsbruck. Its exterior is edged in red and covered all over with delicate spiral vines made of white leather and set with dark-blue lamellae (scales); two red medallions are placed among them. The back of the quiver is dark-blue except for a narrow edging and two oval gold medallions. The arrow quiver is identical and complements the bow quiver.
