COLORADO TERRITORY, FRONTIER MADE, OWNER/MAKER IDENTIFIED.

This powder flask was fashioned from a Cow Horn, in Frontier fashion, and is identified by maker/owner. This was typical of the Powder Horn fashioned on the far western frontier, like Colorado Territory. Cow Horns were plentiful, and the spring top powder release appears to be factory made. Probably from a broken or destroyed metal flask.

The maker scratched his name and location on one side of the horn.

" Made By G. S. Sewall , Col. Ty."

An interesting piece of Frontier History, and part of the high plains mystique of Colorado Territory in the Percussion era.

PRICE $750
