EAST TENNESSEE KENTUCKY LONGRIFLE- New Item -

Fine longrifle from East Tennessee with a 41 ¾” by 1” by 40cal. octagon barrel and is all iron mounted.  There are 5 silver diamond enlays and an iron banana patch box.  The forged guard has a very wide curl similar to the Grosses.  The tang extends up onto the comb and meets the BP which has its own extension.  This is a very unusual feature which I have never seen before in 40 years.  The rear RRP is forged as a part of the wear plate and is one piece.  It is long and extends to within 2 5/8” of the front finial of the TG.  The TG extensions are round.

The stock is maple with a mellow color contrasting with darker areas.  The stock is in beautiful condition with no splits, busted areas or wood replacement.

18th CENTURY CARVED, ANTIQUE POWDER HORN –New Item-

 

This beautiful carved powder horn is attributed to Ebenezer Burbank.  On it is carved “April ye 10, AD : 1765: HC “.  It is about identical to the horn on pg. 79 of Tom Grinslade’s  “Powder Horns : Documents of History”.  This horn is not signed but was made by the same hand, and made 8 days apart.  So it is very likely both were made while both soldiers were in the 1st Co. of Major General Phineas Lyman’s 1st Regt.  Size of the horn is 12 ¾” on the curve by 2 ¾” dia. Plug.  The horn is very attractive with 2 ships, birds and fish along with decorative borders covering the horn.  It was recently discovered in the attic of a home in Stockholm, New Jersey.

SUPER LARGE CONFEDERATE D-GUARD FROM NORTH CAROLINA –New Item-

This fine specimen surfaced in an estate sale in Oxford, north Carolina about 4 years ago.  It is 20 1/2” lg. with a 16 ¼”long blade, 1 5/8” wide and ¼” thk.  It has a semi stirrup guard with a high finial.  The tang peen is untouched.  The one- piece wood handle appears to be butternut. It is shaped with a nice swell in the center. Now the best part.  This is a chance for you to buy a great d-guard at a discounted price due to loss of the top area of the handle.  Patina is what tells me that this was not recent but contemporary with its use.  Otherwise, this knife is untouched.
