GUNSIGHT ANTIQUES

A classic 18th century / early 19th century personal item referred to by collectors as salt or snuff horns in line with their most frequent use. As a small screw top container measuring approximately 3 inches long, these little traveling containers of natural cow horn with turned bone cap would have served well to carry the usual personal bit of salt or other food seasoning, snuff, herbs or other medical preparations. Practical use would have been limited only by imagination. This scarce original example remains in excellent condition with no cracks or splits as usually found in existing period examples. Buy with confidence! We are pleased to offer a no questions asked three day inspection with return as purchased on direct sales! Just send us a courtesy e-mail to let us know your item will be returned per these provisions and your purchase price will be refunded accordingly. Thanks for visiting Gunsight Antiques! :COLOR=#0000FF>
