important! Escaping the Indians – decorated early American POWDER HORN grouping

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.

With eye appeal and condition best demonstrated by our illustrations, this early American decorated powder horn measures approximately 11 inches from spout to butt. With decoration and provenance harkening back to frontier New England and now seldom remembered confrontation there between early inhabitants and Native Americans, this eye appealing decorated powder horn will make a desirable addition to any period collection. The significance of the period depiction of young woman escaping capture by pursuing Indians is revealed by the most rudimentary research of a descendant family note pinned to an accompanying homespun relic. ‘This piece of Material was spun by your great great great grandmother on Pearl Hill, Fitchburg. She sheared the sheep, dyed the wool spun it into the pattern and cloth. Over 150 years old. Grandma Brown was the person who ran from the Indians.’. A google search quickly identifies Pearl Hill, Fitchburg as Fitchburg, Massachusetts, with a further search of period Brown family landowners produces a, period singular, Captain William Brown who, shortly after the Revolution, donated land for the Fitchburg town meeting house, and his spouse Elisabeth (Coffin) Brown. (see: Elisabeth Brown (Coffin) (1763 - 1843) - Genealogy (geni.com) While beginning with the capture by Indians and carrying away of founder John Fitch and his family in 1748, (see: Fitchburg Massachusetts, Past & Present by Wm. A. Emmerson) Fitchburg’s local lore and a generational history of Native American conflict, leaves much to explore.
Remaining with the horn is a 16 inch square piece of wool homespun described in the penned ’Granny note’ simply as a piece of material spun by great, great grandmother Brown who sheared the sheep, dyed the wool and spun it into the pattern and cloth Offering clear evidence of period work while remaining in pleasing condition, the remnant is fashioned from two 8 inch loomed swatches, center seamed with overall silk tape binding. (A matching tape suspension indicates an intended purpose beyond simple display?) The width of the fabric, structural unevenness and design concept uniformity with variation in execution, are all good evidence of the piece being the product of an 18th early 19th century country popular table, frame loom or rigid Heddle loom. An exceptional piece in and of itself for the early American textile enthusiast, it and the powder horn need to remain together with the descendant provenance. A desirable early americana grouping!
