This is an absolutely wonderful horn. It exhibits ample size and early construction techniques. The spout is hand carved octagonal and retains the remains of the original leather strap from its period of use. All the surfaces on this horn are ABSOLUTELY UNTOUCHED. Great color, great patina, great overall conformation and great condition! The horn has a natural curve and twist shape, which is highly desirable as it allows the horn to be carried tightly against the body. As an example of a pure, Colonial American Powderhorn, this horn is as good as it gets. It measures almost 14 inches on the outside curve.
