This exquisite North Carolina style horn measures 14-1/3" long with a very attractive twist. This style of powder horn was popular in the Southern colonies during the American Revolution. The 3" long neck is turned antler and secured to the horn using small iron pins. The neck has a strap groove for attaching a shoulder strap. A hand carved wooden stopper is included.The horn's body is stained to give it a attractive patina finish. The horn's turned walnut "beehive" style butt plug measures 2-1/4" in diameter, and 2-3/4" long. The base is decorated with brass tacks.

The body of the horn is scrimshaw engraved with the name Captain Robert Howe with a patriotic verse. Captain Howe was from Brunswich Ville, North Carolina and was a highly decorated soldier in the American Revolution. In 1776 the British burned Brunwick Ville to the ground.
