Southern Horn With Applied Tip

This long slender Southern Style Powder Horn measures 17-1/2 inches around the outside curve and 2-1/2 inches in diameter at the butt plug. The black walnut butt plug has been hollowed out to lighten the horn and provide for more powder capacity. The applied antler tip has a tapered spout hole to accept a tapered rosewood violin peg spout plug. Strap attachment is by a staple in the buttplug and another staple in the body of the horn. Adjustment for the 3/4 inch leather strap is by means of an antique brass harness buckle. This is a right side carry horn.
