Powder horn used by Colour Sergeant P Hogan, 91st Regiment of Foot, Jamaica, 1822

A powder horn was a container used by a soldier to carry gunpowder. They were made from cow and buffalo horns and usually had a stopper at one end and a lid at the other. This example is missing its lid. It is engraved with several motifs including the sun and moon, a mason's set square and calipers, an alligator, a man holding a grapefruit and one holding a bow, an Irish harp with crown, a rose and thistle and an anchor and crossed sword.
