8 1/4” length. Spout recessed for a suspension strap. Oval wood base secured with iron tacks. Surface dry with little flaking. Horn slightly shrunk away from the base tacks from drying. Wonderful desert aged condition as found with skeletal remains and skulls. Dating to the percussion period which saw very limited exploration and settlement west of the Mississippi, and the truly Wild West, Indian fighter days on the Western Frontier. Earliest example we have encountered.
