Applied-tip Powder Horn with Fraktur Scrimshaw (Horn#46)

I am doing scrimshawed horns right now and this one is more traditional fraktur with geometric designs and stylized flowers.   I skipped the color on this one except for the ferric nitrate stain giving a little yellow color to the horn.

This right hand horn is 14″ around the outside curve and 11.5″ tip to tip, not including the stopper. The cherry base plug is 2.48″ in diameter.  The tip is horn and antler. The stopper is walnut.   While this is a traditional right hand horn.  the engraved panels are positioned so that they look right when the horn is worn on either side.

I am asking $375 for the horn plus $25 for shipping and insurance.   I collect the appropriate sales tax when shipped to a Virginia address.    The bespoke price for a horn with a turned base plug and an applied-tip  is $215.   Scrimshaw is $200.
