Mark Thomas Horn

This is a small horn, 10 1/2" on the outside curve, with a 2 3/8" dia. spiral-carved walnut plug. An amber faceted spout flows into the white body of the horn. This horn has been natural-dyed to give it the reddish-brown/honey color so often seen on old horns. At the engrailing of the horn is a beautiful stylized leafy border, and a nice double border at the end plug. This horn is small enough to be carried on either side, but favors the left in the slight curvature of  this little beauty.
