St. Louis Inlaid Bison Powder Horn 209

Price: $900   (Shipping Included)

Add to Cart

This elaborately inlaid powder horn is in the St. Louis style of the Fur Trade Era. 

This piece was carved from an old American bison bull's horn with a very solid tip and walls. The spout was detached, hollowed out and lathe-turned, and then pinned back in place. The neck has a strap groove, and eight flat facets with scalloped edge. Four flats have six inlaid dots, and four flats have five dots and an inlaid diamond. The body has eight draping chevron groups along the base, and an oval dots arrangement surrounding a diamond personalizing inlay (for owner's initials).

The flat base plug is pine, and has twelve alternating sections of horn and faux ivory with contrasting dot inlays. There are 209 inlays total.

The spout plug and strap finial are turned ebony with four inlaid dots. The finial sits on a faux ivory base star.

This powder horn can be carried on either side.

The horn body is 14" long and the bases is 3.5" diameter.
