Estate Found Antique 1800's /1900's Powder Horn Flask :
Estate Found Antique 1800's /1900's POWDER HORN FLASK
CONDITION OF THIS PARTICULAR ITEM:
This nice oldhorn comes to us from one of our estate homes. It has beendisplayed and cared for as part of a small collectionby it's previous owner andit looks very nice as shown.
I see a few chips, as shown... but nothing distracting or structural.We think that with alittle further light cleaning by it's next owner it would be even nicer.
We have'nt opened it or cleaned it. There is something rattling around inside.
Cap on large end is held in place with tiny nails that appear to be hand made. I'm no expert in horns, but I have been around antiques my whole life and I would say this dates to at least the turn of the century... and maybe quite a bit before that.
This measures about8 incheslong and about 2 inches wide.

Frequently asked questions about our sales:
Q: Do you accept offers?
A: Generally, we do not accept offers on our items. We put items on either as sales or "Buy-it-Now". sale items must complete the sale process and will be sold to the high buyer. Buy-it-Now items are available for instant purchase at the price shown.
Q: I live in your area. Can I pick this up if I am the high buyer?
A: Yes, of course. All of our items are available for pick up at our Anaheim warehouse. We do not charge a pick-up fee and you will save the shipping costs.
Q: Can I come and see this thing before I offer?
A: Yes, we always welcome personal inspection of any items. Keep in mind this is a big place in two buildings with at least 2,000 items for sale at any time... a real warehouse operation. Always let us know you're coming... and our address and directions are available by clicking that little "ME" icon near our user name near the top of the listing. You'll come into the front office and we'll be glad to bring any item out for you... but you can't walk around and shop. It's not a retail store.
Q: What's the history on this? Where did you get it? How old is it?
A: Our things come from complete estate purchases and bulk unclaimed storage purchases and are selected from thousands of items a month passing through our hands. We obviously can't talk to the previous owner about the items we purchase, so we generally know nothing about the item's past history.
Q: Why is shipping so high? The post office ads on TV say things can ship for $5.95.
A: Shipping and postage rates have gone way up over recent times. While some small things may indeed fit in that tiny flat rate box, most anything will need some sort of packaging materials to protect it, and that means a bigger box. We refuse to ship anything that's not safely packed, and sometimes that also means a bigger box. Other sellers think their responsibility ends when the package leaves them, but we know you want your purchase to arrive safely... and we do too.
