  • Description: This is an antique powder horn acquired from a collection in Newfoundland many years ago. The interesting old horn measures 14 inches in length and has scrimshawed images of a fish and corn stalks below a serpent like design that runs the length of the horn with now worn writing inside that is no longer legible except for what looks like the word Grace at the end. The robust wooden plug has remnants of leather beneath numerous hand cut nails and a new cork stopper plugs the pouring end. The aged horn has a pleasing patina showing some age related flaking. A great old horn that must have an interesting past.
