Wife Horn by Cory Joe Stewart

January 28, 2013
We have known Cory Joe Stewart since we started Powder Horns and More in 2006.  He was working on his PHD in Early American History and doing powder horns as a hobby. Now he is working in education in North Carolina
This is one of Cory’s early horns. He found this old saying about what you should do concerning your wife and your powder horn.
This horn has a small dome base with a staple. The scallops at the tip add a nice touch. The throat has some nice engrailing.

Old saying about not sharing your wife or your horn by Cory Joe Stewart

Take not this horn
for fare or shame
for on it lies the owners name
My horn my wife I
Do intend to use
But not to lend if that
should cause strife
I would lend me horn
before me wife

Horn for Fellow Vet by Jason Jacobs

I used one of your horns to make this finished horn for my cousin, Terry.

Terry was with the 502nd BN, 101st Airborne Division in Vietnam. He had a
very difficult time after he got home and he did not really open up to anyone
until after I was deployed overseas and came home myself.

The centerpiece of the design (the Eagle) was inspired by one of Mike

Robert’s horns seen on your Customer Creations page. I added the “502” to the shield and the banner above the eagle reads “Rendezvous With Destiny”, the battle cry of the 101st.

The plug and stopper are walnut and I finger-wove the strap from buckskin.
