Named Seal Hunters Powder Horn Newfoundland Scrimshaw Ship

  • Maker: Powder
  • Model: Horn
  • Caliber:

  • Description: This is a antique seal hunters powder horn that was purchased in Newfoundland many years ago. The interesting old horn measures 15 inches in length and has a nice scrimshawed image of a sailing ship and several names Mr. Joseph Tillof (?) and Mr. George Squire with an other line of type that has worn leaving only what looks like HLLET still visible perhaps the ships name. There are also J + W carved above the ship and a grid design perhaps showing drying racks for the pelts. The original cork plug is held in place with screws and the wood plug is present. A great looking old horn that probably has many stories surrounding it and worthy of future research.
