Small Bag Horn/Day Horn

This bag horn/day horn is approximately 7-1/4 inches long, not including the spout plug, and 1-3/4 inches in diameter at the butt end. It has a lathe turned maple butt plug and a tapered ebony spout plug that is reminiscent of a chess playing piece. The white part of the horn was stained with aqua fortis and the whole horn was given a couple of coats of beeswax. This horn is done in a primitive style and still shows some file and scraper marks. There is no provision for a strap, but can be hung on a cord or string. It has wonderful color and is just the right size for a days squirrel hunting with that small caliber rifle. Carry it in your hunting pouch or in your pocket.
