    Classic Late 18th, Early 19th Century New England Powder Horn With Owner's Name And Location Under Glass On Paper label On the Butt End Of The Horn. Horn 12" overall with carved spout. Nice mellow patina in about perfect condition with just one 3/4" hairline at the butt end. An ink script paper label is set in the recessed but end of the horn, covered with a piece of glass with the following information written in a circle around the edge, "Samuel D. Leane North Hampton, N. H." The piece of glass is recessed 1/4" into the butt end, with the piece of paper doubtless laid on top of the wooden butt. A unique detail, found only on New England horns from this period, with this being an excellent representative example.
