The Ezekiel Kelley horn, dated 1763

The Ezekiel Kelley horn is scraped to a thin shell which allows the owner to see how much gun powder he has. The butt end is fashioned out of a hard wood which encompasses a piece of glass covering a piece of parchment which is inscribed;  Ezekiel Kelley twice and the date 1763. At the base of the horn there is also an extended lobe for the carrying strap attachment. The horn was purchased from Cowan’s Auction gallery and was from the James Dresslar collecton.
