X Rated Powder Horn
« on: February 17, 2023, 01:41:57 AM »
Well that got your attentionÖ.

Hereís an interesting powder horn thatís dated 1759. Itís not in he best of shape because of some bug chews and worn areas, unfortunately in the area of the owners name. But it shows something Iíve never seen on an 18th century horn before, it shows a buck mating with a doe with another buck nearby. Iíd be interested in knowing if anyone else has seen a horn depicting something similar. Poor condition or not, itís definitely a conversation piece.

That horn depicts a mid 18th century version of today's modern game cameras!  What the hunter saw!  ;D

A very cool and interesting powderhorn you have Frank!  Thank you for sharing it!

Frank,
Neat horn. I saw a horn about 30 years ago that depicted George Washington with schwantz hanging out! I was too new in the hobby to realize the significance of this. I wish I had bought the horn.

There are some Scottish flat horns from the 1700s that have wildly pornographic scenes on them. Guess the Scots were a lusrty bunch in those times. Nice horn Frank and certainly out of the ordinary. Thank you for posting the photos.
