This is a very nice horn that was home-carved and the worker obviously had no ink or dye to stain his work. It's light to the eye but very nice and quaint when you spot the work. The horn shows a wonderful Patriotic Eagle with boldly carved letters, L-I-B-E-R-T-Y in a semicircle above the bird. It also shows a sun and a lion. The owner, "WANTON MILLARD" is carved at the bottom with the date "1815" below it. This isn't a great horn, but it is very, very nice and worthy of accompanying a fine gun from the period.
