Just under 5” length, cow horn with thickened spout. Old rolled paper stopper with remnants of power. Domed wood butt with decorative brass tack. Carried in the pouch, so no provision for a suspension cord. Made to carry the fine grain powder for priming flintlock pans which assured ignition from the flint/steel spark. The actual charge was made of coarser power. See Collector’s Illustrated Encyclopedia of the American Revolution, Neumann p.152 #21.
