Gunner’s powder horn, anonymous, 1580

cutting, l 35.9cm × d 9.1cm More details

This powder horn is made from an almost complete cow horn. The decoration is fitting: a gunner with a slow match on a staff (linstock) standing by a heavy field cannon. On the other side a deer is fleeing from a hunter with his dogs. The stopper to close the open end of the horn has been lost. Translation of inscription: When I begin to fire, many shall feel my ire.
