REVOLUTIONARY WAR MINUTEMAN “FRANCIS CARR” POWDER HORN.

This exact horn is pictured in Tom Grinslade’s Powder Horns: Documents of History. Grinslade properly describes this historic horn as follows: The caption on the horn reads, “MARCH * 14 * 1775 * FRANCIS CARR*,” a date which indicates that the horn was made prior to the conflict at Lexington and Concord, perhaps when Carr first joined the Minutemen. The Royal British Coat of Arms, a hell-horse, a panel with the bust of a man labeled “CARR,” along with several birds, a snake and a deer decorate the horn. Pvt. Francis Carr marched on the alarm of April 19, 1775, in the Minuteman Company of Capt. Ebenezer Colby in Col. Johnson’s Regiment. During his service of six days, he went from Haverhill to Cambridge, a distance of about 35 miles, as listed in the Massachusetts Soldiers and Sailors of the Revolutionary War. The total number of men who are reported in the records to have marched on the Lexington alarm was about four thousand. Francis Carr, 1751-1821, was the father of U. S. Congressman James Carr and the founder of a Bangor, Maine political family. Carr was born in Newbury, MA moving to Haverhill and represented Haverhill in the Massachusetts House of Representatives. He is buried in Mt. Hope Cemetery in Bangor. A copy of text referenced where this horn is pictured is also included. There is a similar Revolutionary War horn with a much later 19th Century brass spout from powder flask on display with Revolutionary War arms at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York City. The word “Washington” appears to be a later addition on “freshened” inscription. SIZE: 13″ l x 2-3/4″ d at base. CONDITION: Very good overall. One iron tack slightly raised. Minor insect damage as can be seen in photos. 49851-1 (6,000-9,000) – Lot 2025

UNUSUAL LACQUERED SEATED FIGURE OF A LOHAN.

Ming Dynasty, China. Carved from one piece of wood. Seated in lotus position on a high pedestal, the figure with hands in gesture of meditation and wearing long flowing robes decorated with relief carved floral brocades. Face with shaved head and serene expression. Reverse of base with remnants of script. The carving was examined by three (3) x-rays and one (1) CT scan to determine whether or not there may be an offering or some other objects concealed within. These x-rays were done at the Winchester Testing Lab in Boston, Massachusetts, at Clear Choice Acute Medical Care Facility and the dental office of Richard Y. Liu DMD Pa in Portsmouth NH with the following findings: “In quadrant C at the top right, there is a dark outline in the shape of a parasol/toadstool showing about 3/4 of the curved dome-shaped “lid” and most of the central “vessel” support” and “in quadrant C top right with the horizontal bisecting red line going through the “lid”. Again, the object is defined by dark outline.” The CT scan, performed by Portsmouth Regional Hospital, reveals tunnel passageways and evidence of several foreign objects. The scan highlights a hidden opening from the right hand to mid pedestal, diagonally through the body. There appears to be an object in the tunnel and bright illuminations nearby which possibly indicate other foreign objects. All x-rays and the CD of the CT Scan are included in the offering. These are the findings of the four facilities where the x-rays and CT scan originated, we neither qualify or disclaim these findings but wish to point out the possibility of the presence of objects. SIZE: 23″ h. CONDITION: Some losses to lacquer. Worm hole damage throughout the base. Some losses to the robes in the leg area. Larger losses to the base. 49890-4 (8,000-12,000) – Lot 3218
