Description

A beautiful Large Powder horn. These large Plain Military Type powder horns are typical of the North Eastern US. It has a beautiful original patina and is in overall very nice antique condition it's quite impressive measuring 18” along the double curve. I guaranteed it to be of the late 1770s, or earlier. The photos give an accurate description of flaws and damage if any, so please spend time examining them. A large antique powder horn with a great thinned and smooth shaping with brass bands attached with brass pins rather than nails. The brass bands secure the plug and supporting the neck. The large wood plug looks to have been lathe turned. It has 2 hand shaped brass hooks one on each band. There are some moth chews that have been filled with a mix of sawdust and hide glue.The horn surface has a tan/grey colored patina. The spout has a large wooden plug that I have never removed. Other items show are not included. This is a really really interesting horn used for storage or perhaps charging a mortar. It is by know means a hunting horn.
Delivery of item will be in 3 - 6 business days to Continental USA.
