Large Moroccan Powder Horn Complete with Belt and Bullet Pouches
Date: Late 19 - early 20C.
This Moroccan powder horn is made of black horn mounted with chased and engraved brass mounts. It comes also with thick red baldric belt. Two very unusual leather pouches are connected to the belt.

Rather large horn. 15 inches (38 cm) long. Belt length 41 inches (104 cm). Very good condition. Small hole and few beetles bites. Losses to one of the leather pouches.
Good unusual set not commonly found. Late 19 – Early 20 C.
