According to Jay Hopkins in "Bone Tipped & Banded Horns : Vol. 1" on pages 42 and 43, "the carved details on this horn are a row of Indians and dogs retreating from two armed colonists. It is thought to date between 1760 and 1770. It is probably New England in origin, but is generic enough that it could be from anywhere, including the South. The applied knob and rounded butt decorated with simple groves, could raise the possibility. The butt is turned maple or fruitwood with an applied knob. It is held with eleven roundhead iron tacks. The horn is by an unknown hand." Other images present are what appears to be a horse, a heart, a ship flying a British flag and a stylized female. The horn measures 14 inches overall. Condition: Fair, as described. This horn has a dark, mellow patina. There is a 1/2" by 1/2" chip of missing horn surface and a missing tack. A 1" hairline crack is located at the spout. A small hole is also located just below the butt. Minor chips can also be found on the horn and plug, where they meet. Various scratches and imperfections are also present.
