This powder horn is most likely of New England origin and measures about 14" across the bow. The spout section is faceted followed by a relief ring and a rounded section. The main body has an exaggerated scalloped edge at the top and is engraved with mini-scenes of New England churches and homes, many with oversized weathervanes. There are also rivers and trees, as well as a large inscription panel that has been mostly defaced. The only word that is partially visible is "MATHEW". A date of 1711 was added at a later time. The flat wooden plug is deeply carved with a pinwheel design and has a wooden post in the center, which is removable to refill the powder. CONDITION: The horn retains a pleasing dark honey patina, with some areas of carry wear and some scattered marks from use. Plug is excellent, retaining much of its original finish. DMG
