A gunpowder horn from Peter Weir’s 2003 adventure drama film Master and Commander: The Far Side of the World.
During the Napoleonic Wars, a brash British captain pushes his ship and crew to their limits in pursuit of a formidable French war vessel around South America.
This horn and others like it were made for the production to be used by British soldiers on the ship. Not obviously seen on screen, the horn is made predominantly of resin, wood and metal. The wooden handle at the top unscrews, which is where the gunpowder would be put in, and it has a metal spout at the bottom. It is decorated with a Navy insignia and has a woven strap so it can be slung over a shoulder.
The horn has some wear from production use, such as scuffing and scratches to the paintwork, but overall it remains in a very good condition.
Materials: Resin, Wood, Ferrous Metals.
