A large view of Quebec City is engraved on this well crafted horn. The carving of the stone fort located there, includes a large and well executed British flag flying over the fort. Additional images include two nicely carved sun and moon depictions and numerous stars. The map, in addition to Quebec, includes other forts, encampments, blockhouses, churches and assorted architecture. The waterways are populated with many sailing vessels, including two and three masted ships. The classical border at the plug end displays images of clam shells, figures, and assorted birds and foliage. Consistent with all Master Carver horns, the art, perspective, and shading of this horn are superlative. The raised portion of the horn terminates in one large and two thinner carved rings where it meets the darker, recessed area. Horn measures 14" overall. This horn comes with two John DuMont black and white photographs. Condition is very good. All of the images engraved on this horn are very clear and crisp. It appears that this horn saw no hard usage. It displays a nice mellow patina. There is a 1 1/2" by 1/4" broken piece of the spout tip which has been secured with tape. A very small 1/2" long tapering sliver is also missing from the spout tip. The plug is missing, and several minor chips and abrasions are present along the edge where the plug was attached.
