LARGE, UNUSUAL REVOLUTIONARY WAR POWDER HORN, Unusually Large, 15 Long. Particularly large Revolutionary War POWDER HORN, used to store powder and be used by individual riflemen. This one is a very unusual style, large size horn. VERY LONG, MEASURING 13″ from tip to tip and 15″ along the curve. Butt end cover is extremely unusual, and a piece of horn has been flattened and shaped to do this. Also has hole in the top as shown to put the cord, typical of the Revolutionary War period. I HAVE NEVER SEEN A HORN WITH THE BUTT PLATE MADE OUT OF HORN, AND REALLY NICELY MADE. Has nice tiny iron nail to hold the butt plug in, both from the end and on the side. Also has fancy pouring end with flattened sides. Has carved, threaded cap at the end. Lso made to have a second, threaded end cover/plug. Missing as they often are, but another could be made if desired. This has all the attributes, design, style, patina, and look of a Revolutionary War period horn. Has really nice color and horn characteristics. Clearly, it was a military used early horn, Has a great look to it, a great size, and an unusual, special look, for addition to a collection or to hang with a musket over a fireplace. VERY nice curve and nice aged patina to it. In very good condition overall. Very nice, unusual item and one of the nicer ones you will find. From a Massachusetts estate sale.
