Horn by Sash David and Kathy England

Large flattened Scottish powder horn. Form and decoration typical of the late 17th- early 18th century. Approximately 14" in length. The "Schotland and No Union" quote refers to popular objection to the dissolution of the Scottish Parliament, and  Scotland's "hostile takeover" by the English parliament in 1707 during the reign of Queen Anne.
