Antique 1912 Scrimshaw Horn Bowl Dish Acuerdo Cuerdo Horse Juarez Mexico:
Antique 1912 SCRIMSHAW HORN BOWL DISH ACUERDO CUERDO HORSE JUAREZ MEXICO.
Approx 6 3/4" x 5" x 1 1/2". This curved bowl/dish seems to be made from a horn. It features a bobtail horse and the words either Cuerdo (translation - sane), or possibly, Acuerdo (translation - agreement). Juarez, Mexico 1912.
I have no knowledge of this, and am not sure if this is etched into the horn (although, I can't feel any etching), or if it is ink (or similar). Please see photos and ask questions prior to offerding.
Perhaps Cuerdo refers to the name of a horse at that time and place??
Perhaps Acuerdo refers to an agreement / treaty from the Battle of Cuidad, part of the Mexican Revolution at that time??
As can be seen, there are some ... blemishes??.. from time, age, wear, etc.
This came from the estate of an elderly couple who (many, many decades ago) traveled extensively throughout the world.
Please see photos and ask questions prior to offerding.
