Powder Horn by Clinton E. Byers

The 1775 siege of Boston is one of my favorite motifs for an engraved horn. The Boston skyline is depicted around the throat. Two wharfs bare the motto “Liberty or Death”. Several British ships are depicted anchored in the harbor while sirens and sea-serpents attempt to lure them to their deaths.
