  • Description:

    This powder horn was sourced out of Southern Nova Scotia.  This piece appears to be a genuine MicMac powder horn from the eighteen hundreds.  This horn shows a great petina that only age can produce.  The horn is 11" long with a well worn pine plug at the base, secured by 4 iron brads.  At the base is a row of 6 circles mounted by 6 stars in circles.  In the center there is a row of 9 smaller stars in circles.  A very neat and uncommon feature is a raised 3/4" section of horn and a grove cut to hold the carry thong.The horn is mounted with a modern piece of rawhide which is not original.  The snout shows old rough tapers and no plug.  We believe that this piece is a genuine Mi'kmaw powder horn.  The survival rate of horns of this nature appear to be rather minimal.
