This powder horn is dating to the 19th / early 20th century. The curved body is made from water buffalo horn, beautifully carved with curvilinear motifs, the wide end with a wooden stopper. The gunpowder was stored in the Batak house in large gourds, the chief carried his own personal supply in such containers, which he wore suspended from a chain around his neck. Condition: the spout was originally with a closing mechanism plug, now lost. The suspension lug was probably replaced, the wide end with few stress lines and lost pin (see pic # 11). Dimension: c. 16 cm long, x 7.5 cm wide. Provenance: Swiss collection.
