Measures 10.5" in length through the curve. Has smooth throat with raised ring around the spout. Wood base with Indian tacks covering the base and wood pegs. The raised ring is dated 1841. Consistent with Tansel horns are the engraved eagle motif holding a banner in the beak that reads "E Pluribus Unum". A shield is present in the middle of the eagle body with one talon holding an olive branch and the other talon holding 5 arrows. Under the eagle motif is a date in a rectangular banner "1848", with the "4" engraved backwards. An engraved hunting scene showing 2 dogs chasing 3 deer.
A beautiful and pleasing untouched yellowing patina throughout. The Indian tacks have a golden to brown untouched patina. Overall this is very good to excellent in condition and a very good example of a Tansel horn.
