Powder Horn A754

Gunpowder horn. Great condition, the perfect object for your hunting lodge or your urban villa.

A powder horn was a container for gunpowder, and often made from cow, ox or buffalo horn. Typically there was a stopper at both ends. In later iterations it was spring-loaded to close automatically for safety. The wide mouth was used for refilling, and the powder was dispensed from the narrower point. The powder horn was typically held by a long strap and slung over the shoulder.
