This beautiful powder horn
« on: July 24, 2020, 02:54:18 PM »
Came to me, by way of my friend "ridjunr" (Dan Herda) in Kansas,.... Dan got the horn from someone in Maine.

The original origin of this nice old powder horn with great patina, is unknown.




Same powder horn,.... after I made a couple of minor rawhide repairs.
