From my collection of powderhorns I am selling this early large powderhorn from the middle of the 18 th century, theswedish baroqueperiod. This one is bought in Dalarna (Dalecarlia). It has a nicely turned wooden base and a carved dogs head on top, with eyes of bone. I am not sure if it has been for military or hunting use. 42 cm (16,4 inches) long. OK condition for its old age.
