"New York" Horn by famed "Pointed Tree" Carver

ITEM #: H-12

PRICE: $7,500

Description:

French and Indian War New York map horn by famed “pointed tree” carver. With British coat of arms. Map begins with New York City (windmill, battery, harbor scene) then runs north up the Hudson to Albany, Schenectady, thence up the Mohawk (Forts Hunter, Henrick, Herkimer, and Stanwix) to Wood Creek, Ft. Bruinton (?), Oneida Lake, Niagara, Lake Ontario, Fort Ontario, Oswegatchie, Montreal, and Quebec. The Lake Ontario portion of the horn seems top have rested in damp spot, causing delamination and loss of most of the engraving in a 4 x 2 – inch oval. The rest of the horn is essentially mint, with all its original red polychrome. Quarter-sawn white pine base-plug with old red paint. Note: due to the old water damage, this horn is not $25,000, but only $7,500. Rare chance to own a genuine French & Indian War map horn at an affordable price. New York City to Montreal will display perfectly, as damage is only on back side. Front includes “signature” motif of this carver (besides pointed “cedar” trees): hunter firing at deer. 11” overall (chord).
