sold pending funds Botetourt Co, VA childs rifle

Here is a most unusual child's or ladies rifle with a cast brass, friction lid, engraved patchbox. Plain maple take-down stock. The barrel is rifled, .32 cal, 39 inch, and only 5/8ths inch across the flats. Yes, it needs restoration: fore end with pipes and cap, lock, and sights; but what a neat little gun. I will be set up at the 6th Annual Eastern PA show in Morgantown, PA on Sept 18 & 19. Please see for more antique Kentucky rifles. sold pending funds

Pioneer Made Buffalo Horn Hat Rack RJT# 3740 - $449.95

Description Buffalo Horn Hat rack of the 1870s. During the trail driving days and into the early 1900s, the making of items from horn reached a high popularity. Furniture companies added a sideline of horn furniture. Individuals, some on a large and others on a small scale, began to make chairs, tables, hall trees, hat racks and other items from cattle and buffalo horns. As thousands of horned cattle were shipped to various markets, their horns became available and were made use of by individuals wanting to have a part in the current horn fad. The finished products were as varied as the imagination of the makers. This is a 6-horn hat rack with the added feature of a pin cushion for miladies hat pins. Being made of buffalo they are by far more rare than cow horn racks. These horns are in excellent shape and are ready to hang your hat and gun belt on. A prefect addition to your old west room.

Why even Charlie Russel had one of these to hang his hat on.
