Decorated Folk Art Powder Horn


Profusely decorated folk art powder horn, 16” long. The carved decoration includes two full length Native Americans, a bearded man’s face, several men and women, trees of various sizes, several animals and birds. The center panel is inscribed “E Pluribus Unum” above an American eagle. Under that are the initials, “RG” and the inscription, “Honesty and Industry, Peacham [VT], March 1847”. The 1820 census record indicates a man named Robert Guy lived in Peacham, suggesting that perhaps this was his powder horn. The horn is in very good condition and would be a great addition to anyone’s folk art collection.
