Not often seen at this size, this horn is in remarkably good condition for its age - almost 200 years old. Some dings, of course but blows very well with a deeper tone than more modern horns. Swaine & Co. became Swaine & Adeney in 1834 so the engraved maker's details confirm its vintage. A worthy addition to any horn collection.
From the heyday of foxhunting - pre WW1 - a good example of the traditional pattern purpose-made leather pouch for holding a pewter sandwich tin designed to be strapped to the saddle. Best quality leather work with stitching intact. A piece of Edwardian history.
