Double Powder Horn (Commissioned)

Commissioned Work

A fairly rare style of powder horn: a matched set of black and white horns are mounted to a single turned sycamore base plug. The center piece is bored through, and a plug is set just beneath one of the applied horn rings, allowing 2/3 of the horn to be filled with coarse powder and 1/3 filled with primer powder.

The hexagonal spouts are also sized for their individual purpose. The spout plugs are turned from the horns’ tips, and set with a wood plug. The base and heat-set horn bands are fastened with small brass nails.

The horn is 13” from tip to tip and 19” along the back curve.
