Powder Horns, Carved Decoration
Powder Horn, Carved
"Honesty and Industry"
The horn is extensively decorated with birds, animals, trees, Indians, an eagle under a banner reading "E Pluribus Unum", and a portrait of a man with a beard. There are also what appear to be three sequential pictures, one of a well-dressed man and woman, the second of a group of men under a tree, two of them shaking hands, and a third of a smiling man approaching a smiling woman. Perhaps the engravings depict him asking her, then receiving her fathers blessing and finally bringing the good news they may proceed with the wedding plans. The initials "RG", "Honesty and Industry", and "Peacham March 1847" are carved around and below the eagle. "RG" may be Robert Guy who was recorded as living in Peacham, VT with his family in the 1820 census. The significance of the date is not known, and the phrase "honesty and industry" reflected popular American values of the time and can be found in the Bible, Franklin aphorisms, and even wedding vows. The horn is approximately 14" and has a brass plug and a brass stopper with an adjustable measure. There is some scuffing on the outside curve of the horn but overall it is in excellent condition.
Powder Horn, Carved
"Wo [sic] to them that rise up / early in morning that they / may follow strong drink"
Companion to the larger horn
This small, approximately 8.75", powder horn is decorated with and eagle with spread wings, a small figure of a gentleman, and seven profile portraits. The phrase "Wo [sic] to them that rise up / early in morning that they / may follow strong drink", is carved in block letters between the profiles. The passage is from Isaiah, Chapter 5, Verse 11. There is a wooden plug with an eye screw and a carved ring and spout. There are a few small chips on the body of the horn away from the carving and one chip near the edge of the butt end.
