This map horn is inscribed; "Jan Fraser" "R.H.E." (Likely the 84th Royal Highland Regiment). The map on horn shows the route from "Fort EdWard" to "CroWn Point". Other place names engraved on this map include: "Third Falls", "Schome Creek", "Fort Ann", "Fort W Henry", "Wood Creek", "East Creck", "Sonh Bay", "FAll", "East Bay", "Todram Pend", "Two Rocks", "Drowred + Land", "Ticonderoga", and "Lake George". It is very nicely carved with an elaborate three-tiered border design below the butt plug. Also depicted are two forts with British flags and what appears to be three redoubts. There is an extended lobe above the flat, hardwood plug. The is a darker, recessed part of the horn is engraved with the owner's name and regiment. There are also two carved rings for strap attachment below the spout. This horn measures 13 - 1/2" overall. This horn is number 350 in Grancsay's "checklist" of then recorded powder horns. It was previously owned by Mr. Lammot duPont Copeland, as in Stephen V. Grancsay's "American Engraved Powder Horns," published by the Metropolitan Museum of Art in 1946. Ex. DuMont collection. Condition: Good. There are two areas where carving appears to have been removed. The plug appears to be original, but is not attached to the horn. The extended lobe has minor cracks.
