This extremely rare, historic and possibly unique Fort Duquesne map horn is inscribed: "G. Biler" "G B". Fort Duquesne, along with the Monongahela and Allegheny rivers, is prominently illustrated on the main body of this horn. Other images engraved on this horn include a running stag, a lion and whimsical designs. It is fitted with a domed, walnut butt plug, which features turned concentric rings and a large integral knob/finial. A bold and deeply cut sawtooth edge decorates the beginning of the recessed portion of the horn. This horn has a faceted and tapering spout that retains part of its leather strap attachment. It measures 12 - 1/2" overall. Condition: Good. Approximately half of the integral knob is missing. The remainder of the knob is bound with thread to prevent further separation.
