This professionally engraved map horn measures about 14-1/2" across the bow. The spout section is faceted with a relief ring at the tip, followed by vase-and-ring turnings. The main body is engraved at the top with a large British crest above two cannons staged with drums and cannonballs. There are several areas shaded with red polychrome colors. Below this is a cartouche inscribed "NEW YORK 1758". Around the bottom portion of the horn there are three large warships in the New York harbor. The cityscape shows windmills, churches, a fort, and several steeples displaying windmills. The wooden plug is flat and retained by wooden pins. CONDITION: Very good overall, with a pleasing honey patina and showing some carrying wear and scattered minor scratches and marks from use. Wooden plug shows some scuffing and scattered holes from nails once in place for a carrying strap attachment. A very attractive dated French and Indian War powder horn. DMG
