Trade Powder Flask

Trade Powder Flask

A grey powder flask with a sea shell embossed embellishment on either side. The dispenser is gold and has a mini lever to dispense powder. The overall silhouette is teardrop-shaped. Two very small rings stick out of the neck of the flask and a string is attached to them. The string ends in two different colored green tassels (one each).  The original display card read, “Powder horns go back to the days of the Muzzle-Loader and were usually homemade. In this country it did not take long for the traders to introduce factory made substitutes, but now they are rarely seen.”
