Powder Horn by Cory Joe Stewart

This is one of Cory Stewart's early horns. Cory Stewart has been studying Early American History for years. He found this old saying about what you should do concerning your wife and your powder horn.

This horn has a small dome base with a staple. The scallops at the tip add a nice touch. The throat has some nice engrailing. 

The horn is engraved with:

"Take not this horn
for fare or shame
for on it lies the owners name
My horn my wife I
Do intend to use
But not to lend if that
should cause strife
I would lend me horn
before me wife"
