This raffle is available to Anyone participating. You do not have to be present to win.

A Special Commemorative Serving Platter

by Pennsylvania Redware Potter


In Recognition of

The Honourable Company of Horners 25th Anniversary

In recognition of The Honourable Company of Horners’ 25th Anniversary (1997-2021), Selinda Kennedy has designed and handmade a serving platter to celebrate this special occasion.

The platter is 18” tall by 15” wide and features elements of figures and patterns that can be found on various original powder horns of the 17th and 18th centuries.  It also features a phrase credited to St. Francis of Assisi that epitomizes the spirit of the artisan.  “He who works with his hands is a laborer – He who works with his hands and his head is a craftsman – He who works with his hand, his head, and his heart is an artist.”  At the center of the platter is an oval featuring the HCH logo with the annotation “25th Anniversary 2021” at its base.  This is indeed a special work of art by Selinda Kennedy and commissioned by the HCH in recognition of the Guild’s founding.

The platter will be raffled off with the drawing taking place during the Guild’s Annual Horn Fair at the Grand Hotel in Altoona, Pennsylvania on March 5th ,2022.  The funds generated from this raffle will go to help offset the Guild’s 25th Anniversary Horn Fair costs. The price for the tickets is 5 dollars for one or 20 dollars for five. Please download, fill-out and mail the tickets to Eric Borneman; his address is on the tickets.

Please note that there will be no registration charge for those attending!  As in past years, all NMLRA members, spouses and friends are welcomed to attend free of charge as guests of the Guild.  This invitation is due to the strong bond that has developed over the years between the NMLRA and the HCH and the devotion of the two organizations to the Longrifle Culture.
