    Early Masonic Folk Art Horn Dipper. Elaborately carved horn dipper or ladle measuring 5" in height with an attached 6.5" brass and turned wood handle. Every available spot on the horn's exterior is covered with design elements which include: arch & keystone, all-seeing eye, beehive, hand-colored American flags, mallet, pick, quarter moon, birds, Masonic lodge, rooster on roof, keys, hand-colored thistles, scrolls or book with Masonic tools and symbols, a hand-colored vine-covered column and a full moon. The brass fitting at top is slightly loose. It shows a great deal of age and likely dates from the 1790's. One of the flags has fourteen stars. It is a tour-de-force of the carver's art and a great piece of Americana.
