    19th Century Powder Horn and Embossed Leather Powder Flask. Includes a James Dixon & Son made brown leather flask measuring approximately 9.5", embossed with a game scene. The leather is a bit scuffed but the flask is in very good condition and in working order. The powder horn measures approximately 12.5" and has been adorned with naïve carved designs near the spout and with the name "Joseph Newman" along the side of the horn as well as the initials "JN" on the wooden base. The wooden base is cracked down the center and looks to have an old and rather crude repair (which may have caused the crack). Otherwise it is quite nice for decorative purposes and as such in very good condition. From the estate of Houston collector Brent Burg.
