Thanks for the reply Eytan. The hole in the brass spout is round as in a gun muzzle, but there is no open/close facility, and as has been suggested, the brass could well have been added later.

Thanks Colin. I see similarities in the horn you show, especially the faceted shape of the "spout". Is the faceted part on yours made of wood, or is it heavily tarnished brass?
