A very nice old Georgian Period Copper and Brass Fox Hunting Horn. The horn measures 10" in length with a diameter at opening of 2 1/4".The Georgians were masters at making almost seamless dovetail type joins in metal....look closely and all you will see is a very faint line running down the length of the horn. In the later Victorian era overlapping joins were more likely to have been used and in the now common reproductions this type of item is often made from a single piece of manufactured tubing. These smaller Georgian Hunt Horns could fit in the large frock coats pockets of the riders or had leather pouches that could loop on to a belt. Nice historical piece.
