Another remnant of our nearly fifty years of New England antique picking it is time to move this treasure on to a deserving home. Measuring approximately 10 ¾ inches from butt to spout, this well patinated old powder horn is quite rudimentary at a casual glance. Nice age for sure, with pleasing color but relatively crudely fashioned and plain with the exception of brass tack embellishment on the butt plug. What we’d call a working man’s horn by construction and likely use. A closer look however offers up the clearly period scratch engraved inscription With JAMES FRYE and a nearly obliterated from wear Ju 17 1775 still discernable with close inspection. Enthusiasts of American Revolutionary War history will recognize the date as that of the battle of Bunker Hill with a quick resource check confirming that Col. James Frye was in command of troops there on June 17, 1775. While some time on the internet will offer all the particulars of the action recorded as the Battle of Bunker Hill and Col. James Frye’s roll in the continental military, the identity of the colonist who so proudly preserved his presence on that date has been lost to history. A desirable relic of our American past! Buy with confidence! We are pleased to offer a no questions asked three day inspection with return as purchased on direct sales! Just send us a courtesy e-mail to let us know your item will be returned per these provisions and your purchase price will be refunded accordingly. Thanks for visiting Gunsight Antiques!
