Virginia Style Pinned Collar Screw Tip Powder Horn
I love this powder horn! Based on late 18th century horns from Virginia, the tip is two piece with a turned antler tip and horn collar which is turned and threaded. The base plug is maple wood and is turned in the style of an early Philadelphia screw tip horn. The body of the horn is decorated with a Moravian floral design painted on with red lead (lead oxide, quick lime, and lye) which is an 18th century method of staining horn and bone.
