Engraved Early Philadelphia Powder Horn by Art DeCamp

This horn is engraved in the style of the "Pointed Tree" carver.  It is a circa 1760 French & Indian War period Early Philadelphia horn and has a cherry wood butt with rope carving, a contrasting horn band at the base and natural colored applied collar and screw tip.  The spout end of the horn is "stepped-down" with engrailing at the edge.  The horn body is fully engraved fully on all sides with the British crest, a hunter shooting a deer, an Indian armed with tomahawk and club butt fowler approaching a fort and several pointed trees.
