This horn measures about 11 3/4" overall and has a cone shaped spout section with carved rings at the tip and below followed by a short facetted section turning to round for the remainder of the body. The horn features classic Micmac designs including double curves named by the Micmac "Aboodalooak". The double curve is two crescents placed back to back with various embellishments that change the meaning of the basic form. For another example with this design, see page 212 and 213 of "The Engraved Powder Horn" by Jim Dresslar. Other designs depicted on this powder horn are a mounted rider, two small ships, a canoe, moose, bear, otter, horses, deer, fish, a rooster and two human figures. The flat wooden plug has an engraved circle of about 1" in diameter. CONDITION: Horn has been shortened during period of use and retains a pleasing dark honey patina, showing some scattered marks from use and smoothing. Plug is original to the period of use, and is in very good condition. A very attractive 18th century Native American powder horn. DMG
