This massive horn has a brass base plug inscribed "1693+IOHN LOVING ESQ." The spout is brass and has a hinged clasp. The length is 19 inches from the main hinge straight across to the base plug. The body has various faint markings along with an "11" brand. A horn of this size could carry powder for a whole group of men or be used for priming artillery.

Rating Definition:

Very good with mild overall wear, some rough areas on the horn, dark aged patina on the brass, crisp inscription, and some areas of dark lacquer.
