For your consideration, an 18th to 19th century (or older) American black powder horn flask with hand-carved wooden stopper and round top plug. The carved wooden fittings have an amazing naturally darkened patina, particular area's are more prominently dark and have an almost slick finish from the oil of the original owner's (or possibly owners) hands. An original artifact or relic used during the old American frontier, as old as the American Revolution.
This powder horn shows obvious age of antiquity with signs of use and wear; a natural darkened patina on the wooden fittings, small area's of loss from use and possible damage during a time of war or battle. The chips in the horn are very old which can be seen by the consistent patinated coloration.
There are  very small drill holes at the widest end, which it appears there are two small forged iron nails within the holes that are fixed into the round wooden plug. Niether of the wooden features have been removed in many many years. Approximate Measurements: 7 - 1/2" L x 2" W (at widest point). This eliminates any scams or discrepancies.
