Extremely large powder horn with remains of “US” marking in convex white pine base

PRICE: $1,250.00

Description:

Honey-colored horn 17” long (chord) shaved to translucency (to see amount of powder remaining).  Spout with carved facets and rings.  No provision for suspension so it must have been a storage horn, as size alone suggests.  Far too big for the individual soldier or even an artillery priming horn. “US” is 3/8” high, suggesting an early date.  However, not enough remains of the mark to evaluate or date it.
