#2 Applied Tip Powder Horn
« on: September 11, 2023, 06:07:30 PM »
Here is the next horn in my series of applied tip horns.
14" overall on the bottom curve, less the baseplug.  About 2 1/2" in diameter at the base.
Right side carry.
Quite translucent.





The tip started out to be a totally different design, but by the time I removed all the delaminations, it took on a life of its own.  Kind of looks like the nipple on a baby bottle to me now. :P
Birch pegs secure the baseplug.
Thanks for looking, as always comments/ critiques welcome.
I will be putting it up for sale next week sometime.

I think in another 20 years, I will be making horns in the Great Workshop in the Sky.  Not too sure about the demand for them there, though.

Very nice!  Does that have a staple on the butt for the carrying strap?

Would it be possible to use a single color background for your photos?  The baby bottle teat is a tad hard to make out for my aging eyes!  :laffing

Sorry, Kees, that tablecloth is pretty busy, isn't it?  But colorful, for sure.

I like that the horn's thin enough to see the wood grain of the hidden portion of the plug..  :toast
