Manufacturer: Antique handcraft

A bit of a departure for us but too neat to pass up was this attractive hand decorated and silver mounted antique drinking gourd. Standing approximately 3 ¼ inches high and about the diameter of a baseball, this all original decorated drinking gourd dates in the earlier to mid nineteenth century. Deassed from a small maritime museum (see inventory # on bottom) where it had been displayed as an example of early 1800s sailor art from passage around the horn, this piece is actually of South American origin, more specifically Argentina. Our research has told us that the hand carved and paint embellished design on the body of the gourd is from the seal of Argentina’s Constitutional Assembly of 1813. (see illustration) All original and in nice condition with no cracks of flaws this piece offers wonderful rich age patina. As with all direct sales, we are pleased to offer a no questions asked three day inspection with refund of the purchase price upon return as purchased! Thanks for visiting Gunsight Antiques!!
