18th early 19th century iron bound GREASE HORNS

NOTICE

********NOW OPERATING FROM OUR NEW HEADQUARTERS ********



Now fully operational from the beautiful Pacific North West, we encourage all to keep a close eye as we unpack posted offerings and continue what will be an ongoing effort of unpacking the collection while taking stock with an eye toward thinning out our accumulation of treasures. After years of seeking out and acquiring all manner of quality antique Americana from simple but seldom surviving items of special interest to historically important treasures, Janet and I look forward to offering the fruits of our years of seeking out such to new and appreciative homes.

Equally in their proper place on a Revolutionary War / War of 1812 Artillery Carriage or suspended from the side of a western bound prairie schooner, the 1700s early 1800s with use into the Civil War era grease horn was an integral utility used in the day to store and carry lubricant for applicant to the heavy wooden wheel hubs. Intact examples such as are offered here are seldom encountered on today’s collector market as discarded or stored horn pairs invited insect and animal damage all attracted by the grease once contained within. Hand crafted from steer horn and blacksmith bound in black iron with forged attachment suspension chain, the mouth of each horn was plugged with a small corked access hole for application and refilling. Stoutly made for rough usage and exposure to the elements this all original pair of grease horns measure 18 from tip to butt and remain as found with good evidence of period use and a deep natural age patina to iron and horn. The exceptional iron work with fancy integral chain will set this pair will set them in good stead in any period display. Buy with confidence! We are pleased to offer a no questions asked three day inspection with return as purchased on direct sales!
