This horn is inscribed: "LUNINBURGH MAY ye 26th" "IN THE YEAR AD 1752" "NELSON FINNEY HIS HORN". The main decoration on this diminutive horn is a stylized, folk art rooster in a panel with foliage. Below the rooster is a beautiful floral type decoration that blends well with the half inch border at the butt end. There is another whimsical border just below the thinly tapering spout. It has a flat butt plug secured with small iron pins and fitted with what appears to be a small brass drawer pull from a desk or small box. This horn measures 10" overall. There is a Lieutenant Nelson Finney who was born July 8, 1728 in Taunton (Bristol), Massachusetts. Condition: Very Good. This horn features a nice warm, mellow patina. Normal, minor abrasions from use are evident.
