Powder Horn, Carved Plug, Decorated
American, Late 18th to Very Early 19th Century, entire view 1
The tip was cutback during the mid-nineteenth century to accommodate measure;
the retrofitter considered this an important upgrade. The horn is decorated with a crosshatched collar,
scratch decorated house, Indian, dog, trees; conjoined heart, ship and a man with musket-to-shoulder.
Wonderful spiral carving centering a crosshatched oval device in center of butt plug.
Very dark patina… this piece has soul. (the small tacks securing plug have all rusted-out.
(Length: 7.25")
