This is a massive sterling silver meade horn tip based on a find from IX century Norway.
It is cast from solid sterling silver and weighs over 1.6 troy ounces. It measures 4″ long. The opening is 5/16″ diameter and tapers to a point inside the conical back. This should be mounted on a long, skinny horn with a narrow point.
The tip is designed to be epoxied onto a horn that has been sanded and shaped to fit.
This is a complicated piece to make. There are 6 individual parts that are separately cast and lathe turned, then permanently silver-brazed together to create this exquisite meade horn terminal.
The eyes are set with two 5mm diameter faceted gemstones of your choice.
