Philadelphia Screw Tip Powder Horn by John Proud

A large Philadelphia screw tip horn, approximately 3&1/4 inch base diameter by 15 inches length on the outside curve. The base and spout plugs are English walnut supplied by the client as was the engraving design. The base band and spout collar are cast and turned pewter. The horn was treated with aqua fortis and heat, then rubbed down with a dilute solution of potassium permanganate.
