The display box measures 13" across x 9" deep x 3 1/2 tall. During Revolutionary time carved Powder Horns were a highly regarded form of art.To help pass the time in the lull between battles & during the long winter encampments, soldiers inscribed their Powder Horns with intricate designs. With a sharp knife, artistic skill and a creative imagination, a soldier could transpose a utilitarian object into a thing of beauty. This commemorative features an original design created by the distinguished artist Isa Barnett, who has captured the heroic spirit of the patriots persevering during the bitter winter encampments to serve the cause of freedom. It is hand blown "Baccarat" crystal and it is capped and banded in solid sterling silver with a sollid sterling silver chain.
