Powder Horn

(1/3) > >>

This my powder horn.  It was made about forty two years ago by Jack Brooks, a skilled custom rifle maker who makes late 1700's flintlocks, rifles, and accoutrements.  A friend of mine gave it to me for Christmas back then and it has been with me on every hunt with my rifle and smoothbore since.







The bird in the middle photo is a distelfink, or in modern terms, a Pennsylvania Dutch Folk Art bird.  This has several forms and the one on this horn is sort of a wild Turkey. 

My name is on the horn, with a saying that goes ............ His Horn, Steal it not for Fear of Shame, for on it Stands the Owners Name.

  Very nice Stan, thanks for sharing.    :thumbsup: :cheers:

Thanks Moe.

Crash that is bed ticking used as a backing.  The other side is a glass bead wampum strap like the one Hawkeye used in the movie "The Last of the Mohicans".
