Small Revolutionary War Era Pistol Primer Powder Horn-4″
This piece is pretty cool. The smallest primer horn I have ever seen. At just 4″ long it was probably just carried in a pocket and not on a strap. It appears to have the original hand carved plug. Lots of use wear and very nice patina overall.
Rare Native American Indian Stirrup
This is a very old and rare item that is in excellent condition. It was ingeniously made of from one piece of hand carved wood that was notched and then bent into position. The wood was then tied with what I believe is sinew. Then it was covered with animal hide, possibly buffalo, that was stretched and tied around the entire stirrup. This piece shows the high skill level and beautiful craftsmanship of it’s maker. It was purchased at a relic show in central Ohio in the late 60’s.
