this is a vintage Scrimshaw styled Powder Horn I believe to be around 1880...this is hand engraved but not by a machine....the art is a depiction of  a massive 10 point Mule Deer and nicely detailed. the reason I believe it is around 1880 is simply because I have personally owned this Powder Horn since 1972 when it was given to me with a old muzzleloading shotgun I had purchased from a elderly man..then in his late 70s.....the end cap wood and finial was on it then when I got it however the brass quanity valve was added to it around 1978 when I actually started using the horn to hunt with, the old brass leather sling loop was already on it when I got it.but I believe it and the wooden end cap with leather sling finial may have been added later in the horns life....but I am not for sure about that.... When I obtained it it didn't have a cork in the end that is why i had a Gunsmith add the brass shutoff valve to the end so I wouldn't spill my powder. at somepoint in the horns life someone has put some clear laquer over the horn ,yes I know it was stupid but I think my Gunsmith may have done that way back when and since he is dead now,oh well.....underneath the art work on the horn is the initials JCG under that is 80......the horn is 7 3/8 around the big part and is 11 inches long overall, the main horn body without the wood end and the brass valve is around 9 inches,hard to measure exact with the curvature of the horn.....I have no idea of the value so I am simply guessing from past experiences of other antique powder horns selling at high end gun and collectibles auctions...plus I had a collector try his best to buy this horn from me back in 1981........selling as is no returns....../out my other items - opens in a new window or tab!Be sure to add me to your favorites list - opens in a new window or tab!My Stores Logo.
