This is a very wonderful thing
. When we first came across it we thought it might be a drinking horn, or even a gunpowder horn but no! It has a hole in the end so this is undoubtedly a horn of the type Robin Hood would have used to call his merry men!
We have no idea of the date we suspect it is 19th /early 20th century maybe a film prop or for fancy dress, but it could be much, much older.
It has a metal band round the rim sadly coming adrift, a metal band round its middle (part missing) and a metal mouthpiece intact but a bit loose.
These metal bits have rather pleasing hand done hammered decorations. There is an old piece of string still attached.
Hard to measure a thing like this but from mouthpiece to rim it is about 12 13 inches (as the crow flies).
We believe this to be a unique object, it has charm, it needs repair and a good and loving home. We think the asking price is fair but if you think it is over-blown why not visit our price negotiator?
