"The Santa Fe Trail Powder Horn"
A unique piece of memorabilia, this work displays the scrimshaw
portaits of Jedediah Smith and a Comanche warrior. Smith was killed by

Rotating the horn, other scrimshaw images include a map of The Santa Fe Trail,
an indigenous rattlesnake, Comanche bow and quiver, Comanche horse, the landscape
along the trail, and a longrifle of the day along with its powder horn and possibles bag.
The horn construction displays a hand carved spout ring, carrying strap neck ring,
triangle cut engrailment, walnut stained pine butt plug, and
hand-wrought steel carrying strap staple.
The hand-crafted base is arch-cut, stained walnut pine with felt covered support legs.
