James E. Routh, Jr.

Jim Routh, a perceptive and talented artist, became fascinated by the artistic as well as the historical appeal of beautifully engraved powder horns. Over many years, he has built an accomplished, diverse collection of horns representing different regional styles and talents from the 1750’s to the 1780’s. Each of his nine horns has been carefully selected with the keen eye of a connoisseur and the sensitivity of a fine artist who recognizes and appreciates the efforts of those artists who created his wonderful collection two hundred years earlier.
