Patina finished to resemble an original antique, this large powder horn is 11 to 14" long, with a classic carved neck. Notice the hand cut facets of the neck, at the transition from from the white body to the dark neck. A deep groove for the leather strap adjoins a raised square ring, followed by three concave rings, and a polished tapered spout.
The dark stained turned maple butt plug has a turned acorn shape finial, for the leather strap. Brass nails surround the base end. The tapered stopper has a deep groove, for the lanyard cord. The acorn was a common symbol of strength and prosperity, found on English and American triggerguard finials.
Hand made in the U.S.A., this attractive powder horn is a piece of American folk art, functional, graceful, and useful. It will give a lifetime of good service.
