The recessed spout end is faceted with a ring and cannon barrel tip. CONDITION: The wooden plug is missing and there are two chips to the rim where the lobe holes were. There are no apparent cracks or chips. The rim at the butt has been slightly lowered. Horn retains a nice, mellow patina. Attributed to the Master Carver. This is one of 19 that are known to exist as identified by renowned collector Walter O'Connor. DRG
