I should have quit while I was ahead. The first reference I found on the internet stated that it was a Tibetan 19th Century powder flask on exhibit from The Peabody Museum, but I couldn't leave well enough alone. I next found 2 other references that stated that it was Tibetan and 19th century, but it was in fact a beer-drinking horn; Chhaang beer to be exact. These claims were made by "Hundred and One Antiques," and "Michael Backman ltd.," of London; based on what they were asking, maybe it is a drinking vessel, maybe what is written on the side is "Chhaang Beer, the King of Beers."
