A gunpowder horn dating to the 19th / early 20th century. The slightly curved body is made from water buffalo horn, the wide end with a stopper, a zoomorphic closing mechanism and a small iron suspension lug. 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 closing mechanism plug was broken ( now glued) and has losses. Maybe there was a second suspension lug, lost pins, stopper with abrasion area. Dimension: c. 15.2 cm long, x 4.1 cm wide. Provenance: Swiss collection.
