This powder horn is featured on pg. 114 of "Maryland Longrifles" by Hartzler & Whisker. It is inscribed “IONathan FISK 1762.” Hartzler’s notes indicate only that he was a sailor on Chesapeake Bay and had a son who served in a Connecticut regiment in the Revolution. This suggests the owner of the horn may be Jonathan Fisk 1731-1810 born in 1731 in Windham, Connecticut, and died in Hartwick, New York in 1810. The horn measures 14" across the bow. It is quite large in diameter at the butt and has a curved body decorated with bands of foliate decoration, a ship, 2 fish, 2 buck, a dog, a tree, a horse, 2 birds and other foliate designs. Conical faceted spout with 2 relief rings below. Spout plug of turned horn. Slightly convex wood plug and a horn flange with 2 holes protruding at the butt. CONDITION: Dry untouched surface with a light honey patina. Some losses to rings below spout. A nice French and Indian War powder horn. Included are copies of the cover and page where this horn is pictured, as well as Dan Hartzler's identification record on his letterhead. DMG
