Hi my friend!

The powder horn is beautiful, with the cap and very nice decorations.

For the koummiya, they are nice, with nice blades.
But they are not from the 19th c.
They are from the first part of the 20th.
I did a post on this topic few months ago.
You can find a lot like that and they are normally cheap in France due to the colonial past of this country.

Kind regards,
Kubur

Hi Rajesh! That is a beautiful Moroccan horn. Very well detailed and executed. And appears in good condition. Even has it's original stopper. Usually, the stoppers are missing. That is one of the nicer ones I've seen. Congratulations on a good find.

My guess on the daggers would also be maybe early 20th Century. But Kubar and others here on the Forum would have more expertise on the blades than I.
Rick.
