Three Late 18th C. American Powder Horns Carved with Stopper
We are offering a wonderful trio of revolutionary war era Powder horns.
The largest of the group has a beautiful carved double ring towards the spout,
and still has its original carved wooden stopper. There are a set of initials carved in towards the ring
"M I K" and a couple carved in stars.
The next largest powder horn has its original wood carved stopper, and the original
loophole for a carrying strap.
The smallest powder horn has the original hand woven string which
was used to connect a strap for carrying.
The larger one was for a rifle, while the smaller ones were more than likely for a pistol.
All three horns have wonderful colors and would make a great addition to any
They are all in great age-related condition. Larger one has a crack towards the spout.
The medium one has some small losses around the edge of the wider end.
The smaller one has a few bug holes.
