Clinton, I am going to take the opposite view. I think that it is either (1) a custom order from a known maker, or (2) from a smaller less well known maker.


Hard to tell from one grainy photo, but I think the lines look too clean to be a home made item, or a cast iron fake. The conical horn and small hardy and its placement close to the waist look like earlier mid 19th century work. The long horn and tail is more late 1890s style. Maybe a transitional piece?


Jody let us know if you get to see it in person, inquiring minds want to know. (Its a sickness, I know.)
