This horn commemorating the British attack on Havana is engraved in a professional fashion. It is inscribed "FORT MANTANSIA", "LOMORO", "PEONTO", "HAUANA", as well as the usual British crest wording. The images include well executed ships, cities and the British Royal Crest. There are detailed images of troops firing on a dragoon, a mounted officer and several other soldiers of various sizes. The recessed darker spout is in excellent condition with two rings and attractive sculpting. It has a brass band with an attached ring separating the raised portion of the horn from the recessed spout. The nicely carved vase and ring turned spout terminates in a cannon-barrel type turning. Its butt end is secured with a brass band which has a brass staple for the carrying strap. The flat buttcap has a dark, old surface. The horn has been coated with some sort of varnish or thinned shellac which gives it a darker, shiny appearance. A large oval tag states this is from the "CHARLES STANLEY JACOB COLLECTION / 50 / POWDER & SHOT / CONTAINERS". Horn measures 11 1/2" in length. CONDITION: All images are clear and discernable. There is minimal wear from usage. As mentioned, it retains a glossy patina. DRG
