Antique shop steal of the day.
« on: August 31, 2021, 11:12:29 PM »
On a lark stopped in one of the local antique shops, always seem to find something in there I can't live without.  Today was barely in the door and found these.  Five small, old horns (tips?) in a basket for $12 and an old horn cup for $7.  Fiver is for size comparison.  Steal of the day!   ;D

Osprey,

Nice finds.  You were certainly in the right place at the right time.

Do you have anything in particular in mind for any of the horns?

Probably priming or small day horns at some point.  Although, there was a display of snuff mulls at the CLA show that left some ideas...
