The body of this flat green colored powder horn measures 4-1/2" in height excluding the 1-1/2" turned brass spout section applied on top. At the bottom, the horn measures 3" with a thickness of 3/4". The brass plate beneath the spout is engraved with period "1783" inscription, probably celebrating the end of the Revolutionary War. The base plug is also brass and engraved with folk art deer, fox and chicken. The front of the horn is engraved with a depiction of General George Washington mounted on his horse with a sword in hand pointed towards the sky. Above is an "E. PLURIBUS UNUM" banner. On the opposite side there is a large shield with scales engraved within (representing balance) and the phrase "& PEACE" below. There are olive branches on the sides and tulips above the shield. Complete with a wooden spout plug. CONDITION: Very good with wonderful patina. Brass retains a nice dark patina. A very nice and early patriotic American horn powder flask. DMG
