Large Hmong Powderhorn
A large and heavy Hmong Powderhorn with beautiful curvature, made from ib tug heev (txiv) nyuj qus. Circa 1920. Very heavy and thick walled horn, with original copper bands, iron rings and leather straps. Hmong leatherwork is hard to comeby, making this horn particularly rare. Blunt tip is also interesting and unique among Hmong powderhorns. A strong black patina has developed on this horn and I strongly recommend it is kept.
Provenance: Nchaiv Tuam Lis, Luang Prabang district, Laos — made by his grandfather, Tsav Xyooj Lis, circa 1920.
