Featuring a brass rim with exquisitely detailed Celtic Knot etchings plus a shiny brass stopper, this deluxe drinking horn is made from 100% pure cow horn and holds approximately 750ml of water, wine, ale, beer, or other drink. The exterior is polished to a shiny surface while the interior is boiling water proof. Horns from cows, buffalos or oxen have traditionally been used as drinking vessels by various people in many regions of the world, this fine specimen is a great example of the practise. The horn stand is made of twisted metal with a black finish. Horn stands are required at feasts and gatherings where people will be using horns to drink because the horn cannot be otherwise set down without spilling its contents. Note - Wiping drinking horns with vegetable oil occasionally will help increase the life of your horn. Since these items are made from natural materials, the exact colour and shade made vary from piece to piece.
