historically important ! 1772 ‘HMS Gaspee Affair’ - colonial American POWDER HORN

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.

From the bowels of our many years of seeking out and accumulating neat stuff, comes this all original period decorated 18th century powder horn. A relic of the pre-Revolutionary War burning of the British warship HMS Gaspee by colonial patriots, thiscommon man’s powder horn is period decorated with ships and bears the scratch engraved period inscription HMS Gaspee and is boldly dated 1772. While our photographs will offer the best description, suffice it to say that with a period lead hole repair that adds rather than detracting from the horn’s charm and lots of good evidence of age and originality, the horn remains in pleasing condition with no cracks or splits and offers an attractive surface with natural age patina. The horn measures approximately 15 ˝ inches from the spout around the curve to the butt which offers the name E.BEW. ( We did find a Revolutionary War clothing issue record for a 13th Pennsylvania troop identified simply as ’Bew’ With particulars too extensive to present here a quick internet search of the Gaspee Affair will bring details of the 1772 boarding and burning of the Gaspee as the British vigorously enforced unpopular trade regulations off Rhode Island.) An important remnant of building Colonial resistance in the pre-American Revolution period, this historic powder horn was yielded up years ago at the Brimfield, Massachusetts antique extravaganza where we discovered it laying unrecognized on a dealers table. (Those were the days so fondly remembered by the thousands of antiquers who, three times a year, plauded the fields of Brimfield tables.) 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!
