Circa 1800 Priming Horn with Initials of the Owner
A late 18th to early 19th century priming horn made of a cow's horn that has a wonderful slight greenish cast to the horn. Priming powder horns were filled with fine priming powder that was poured into the priming pan of a musket and were smaller than the normal powder horn measuring only 5-6" in length. This fine powder was ignited by sparks given off by the striking of the flint against the frizzen. It has the owner's initials carved into the wood plug at it's large end and great screw marks or scribe marks on the smaller end.
It is 6" long.
