May I draw everyone's attention to this painting by John Russell of HRH the prince regent and later king George IV in the uniform of the Royal Kentish Bowmen in 1791:http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/c ... l_1791.jpg
And in particular to the quiver front right. Is there any information or knowledge whether this has been an actual quiver in the royal archer's possession? If so, does it still exist, in some museum collection maybe?
It resembles a Turkish or rather Ottoman style of quivers used mainly for flight arrows, but the design seems distinctly un-Ottoman. Were quivers of this kind in fashion among British archers in the prince's days?
In short, any information on this particular quiver or similar ones in the UK or in Europe would be highly welcome. Many thanks in advance,
