Powder Horn Info
« on: February 20, 2023, 07:57:48 AM »
I had a friend's father pass away and I purchased a couple of muzzleloaders and these powder horns. I was told his Dad was friend's with the gentleman Mr Mark Burnham who built these. I haven't found much on these.

meangene1969. Good morning Sir. The signed and dated horn is most interesting. I'm always attracted to mechanical objects. However both horns are pleasing and great craftsmanship. Thanks for sharing. Have a deluxe week. AJ.

Those are interesting horns. The spout detail on the top one is especially attractive. I donít think Iíve seen a charger quite like the bottom one. Beautiful patina. Thanks for showing them.

Pretty creative powder measure on the horn measuring grains and drams.
