Contemporary Powder Horns by Art DeCamp "For Sale":
Original Antique Horns and Horn Items.
Tennessee Style Screw-tip Horn with bands:
Tennessee Style Horn Screw-tip Horn with Two Bands and Screw-out Button: This authentic powder horn is patterned after Horn TE-15 in "Bone-tipped & Banded Horns - Volume II. Jay Hopkins believes these horns have a connection to Tennessee as several have been found with ties to the eastern half of that state. It has been lightly "aged" with a nice light yellowish body with two applied bands. The one-piece screw-tip is the "rattle snake" turning. The tip can be reversed to act as a funnel when filling the horn. The maple butt is hollowed inside and at the top to allow the threaded horn button for strap attachment to also be removed for filling the horn. These original horns have very good quality turning and threading which I have carefully replicated. They utilized special iron nails for the attachment of the butt that had the nail heads clad with thin brass caps. This horn has these historically "correct" attachment nails.
The horn measures 12-1/4" across and 2-3/8" diameter at the butt. It has nice curve and twist.
Price $365.00, plus $10.00 for postage.
Kentucky Style Pinned-tip Horn with band:
Kentucky Style Horn with Pinned Horn tip and one Band: This powder horn is patterned after Horn KY 14 in "Bone-tipped & Banded Horns - Volume II. Jay Hopkins believes these horns have a connection to Kentucky as several have been found with ties to that state. It has a nice golden yellow body with one applied band that covers the joint between the horn and maple wood butt. The butt has an integral button capped with a single brass tack. The pinned horn tip is a natural caramel color. I have handled and owned other horns from the same shop as TE 14 and feel they are all very pleasing, yet simple horns.
The horn measures 13" across and 2-9/16" diameter at the butt. It has nice curve and twist.
Price $355.00, plus $10.00 for postage.
Fine Randolph County, NC Style Banded and Pinned Antler Tip Horn:
Randolph County North Carolina Horn with Pinned Antler tip and Bands: This powder horn is patterned after an original in my collection. It is the typical Randolph County style horn from just south of the Salem, NC area. This horn has a light brown maple butt with integral button for strap attachment. There is a brass tack in the top of the button for accent. The two-piece antler tip is very closely copied from my original and has the typical leather stopper found on these horns. The horn body is greenish in color and there are three caramel colored horn bands applied to the horn.
The horn measures 10" across and 2-1/8" diameter at the butt.
Price for horn is $380.00, plus $10.00 for postage.
Lehigh / Allentown Screw-tip Bag Sized Horn with Lead Oxide Border:
Lehigh / Allentown Bag Sized Horn with Lead Oxide Border: This authentic powder horn is patterned after an original in my collection. It has an internal screw tip made from horn with an applied collar to reinforce the spout and provide a stop for the strap attachment. The oblong cherry wood butt has an integral button on top for strap attachment. It also has the classic "v-notch" joint to the horn body found on horns from the Lehigh region. I used lead oxide to create a border or visual "band" just below the butt on this horn. It has light "ageing" and the surface is finished with the same type of tool marks found on the originals from this shop.
The horn measures 10" across and 2-3/8" diameter at the butt. It has nice curve and twist.
Price $380.00, plus $10.00 for postage.
North Georgia Style Pinned-tip Horn with Four Bands:
North Georgia Style Pinned-tip horn with Four Bands: This authentic powder horn is patterned after the horns in the Georgia chapter of Jay Hopkin's book "Bone-tipped & Banded Horns - Vol. II". This one is much like an original I have handled and is colored closely to that one with a nice light yellow horn body, black painted edges on the four horn bands and black paint accents on the cherry wood butt. The pinned tip is made from two pieces of turned deer antler and the stopper is leather made in the manner found on originals. The horn has light "ageing" and the surface and is accented with brass tacks near the butt end.
The horn measures 10-1/2" across and 2-3/8" diameter at the butt. It has nice curve and twist.
Price $410.00, plus $10.00 for postage.
