A wonderfull flattened cow horn powder flask.  It has iron hanger rings and a leather shoulder strap.  The carved wood stopper is attached to the powder horn by an old twisted cord/string.  The wooden base plug is secured with iron nails.  It is hard to know if the stopper and leather strap are original, to this powder horn, but it is highly probable.  The antique strap has seen much use and is typical of its original purpose.
