Hi Stu

I was thinking that maybe the horn had a different cap originally, and the long, decorative spout added latter. But as you mentioned, there was a fair amount of crusted powder remaining...

Hi Stu

That's a nice, and interesting horn. Yes, the brass studs and the engraving on the brass spout piece seem to be from somewhere in North Africa.
My big curiosity is that brass piece and...

Hi again Ivo

That's a nice collection of Albanian pistols. And your new pistol fits in well. Notice the similar locks on all three. But with three different butt cap designs.
The top pistol has...

Hi Kubur

No, actually, I agree with you. I should have been more precise when I said Ottoman, and used Ottoman/Turkish. The semi-precious stones and the tiny tear shaped pieces of coral are...

Hi Ivo

That's what I noticed in the photo. With the exception of the two holes, there doesn't seem to be any other evidence there was ever a trigger guard. Curious. At least the one larger hole...

Hi Stu

Thanks. Again, I thought it would be a cool additional accessory for one of the Afghan belts. This is the first decorated one I've seen. Shows regular use.
