A classic 18th century / early 19th century personal item referred to by collectors as salt or snuff horns in line with their most frequent use. As a small screw top container measuring approximately 3 inches long with a handy suspension chain, these little traveling containers of natural cow horn would have served well to carry the usual personal bit of salt or other food seasoning, snuff, herbs or other medical preparations. Practical use would have been limited only by imagination. This scarce original example remains in excellent condition with its original suspension chain and screw cap. With no cracks or splits as usually found in original examples, this one displays a most attractive age patina. (see: Newman & Kravic's COLLECTOR'S ILLUSTRATED ENCYCLOPEDIA of the AMERICAN REVOLUTION ) Thanks for visiting Gunsight Antiques !
