Artillery Priming Horn c. 1750

PRICE: $2,250

Description:

A similar horn is known with 1750’s “Lake George School” decorative engraving, proving that these were used in Colonial America.  Don Troiani (Soldiers of the American Revolution)  illustrates their use by Light Infantry.  Nearly all pins are brass, rather than iron or steel, to reduce risk of sparks.  Even the spring for the nozzle lever is copper!  Sling swivels are doubly-pivoted, assuring that sling will conform to the wearer. The horn is 14” overall (chord).  From the renowned Guthman collection.
