Banded Georgia Pinned-tip Powder Horn #4:
Small Georgia Banded horn with pinned-tip #4- This Georgia style horn with four applied bands and a two-piece pinned horn tip is authentic to the northern Georgia horns made at the Moravian colony near Dalton, Ga in the late 1820's. The pinned tip is turned from two separate pieces of horn that are accented with lead oxide and pinned to the horn body. The horn has four applied bands that are decorated at their edges with black paint. The maple wood is accented with black paint. The leather stopper is made to be authentic to originals of this style. This is a smaller horn measuring only approximately 9" across. It has nice curve and twist. The maple butt is approximately 2" in diameter and has a separate turned button inserted and wedged into it for the strap attachment. It could best be carried on the right side but would also work on the left. This horn is lightly "aged" with some applied patina.
Price = $420.00, including postage.
I have nineteen original antique horns from a friend's collection that are "For Sale". There are several interesting horns of various types. The horns pictured below are all that are left from the collection of just over forty horns. The horns are "priced to sell" and I am more than willing to discuss "offers", some have been reduced already. Horns are numbered in the group photo.
If you have interest in any of these please contact me for details. Shipping for horns in this group will be calculated in addition to the price.
Banded and Pinned-tip VA/NC Horn: This smaller Virginia / North Carolina horn has a single narrow turned horn band that conceals the joint between the horn body and cherry wood butt. The turned horn tip is pinned in place. The high-domed cherry wood butt has an integral button enhanced with a brass tack in the center for strap attachment. The body of the horn is brown in color. This horn is patterned after several originals I have encountered, one of which is in my collection. It is a very neat "bag" sized horn and will carry very nicely. It measures 10-1/2" across and 2-1/8" in diameter at the butt.
Price: $365.00 including postage.
Late Philadelphia Screw-Tip Horn with painted Butt:
Late Philadelphia style Screw-Tip Horn with painted butt: This horn is closely patterned after a horn in my collection. The Late Philadelphia horn is from the 1790 to 1810 period and is a very sleek and finely made type of horn. The butt on this horn is painted with satin black paint and the button from strap attachment is painted a dark red. The integral button for strap attachment on this type of horn is a separate turned piece with a tapered shaft that is pressed into the butt. The light brownish horn body finished smooth and clean with just a little "ageing applied. The internal screw tip and applied horn collar are natural black horn and contrast nicely with the body of the horn. The horn measures about 10-1/2" across and 213/4" diameter at the butt.
