This is a really great, "in-the-black" horn right out of the woods. It has never been cleaned or enhanced in any fashion. It shows some nice folk-art carving of an early Federal Eagle and is dated 1822, a "Golden Age" powder horn. The best part may be its plug that shows a geometrically carved edge, all the way around. This horn came out of Virginia recently and has that look and texture that a true collector of untouched American Folk Art loves. It smacks of Virginia and the Carolina's and even some Native American influance. A great horn.
