Salt Laudalum Horn

Laudanum-Opium-Salt Snuff Horn

Small salt horns were carried by all military personnel in the American Revolution to season poor, half-cooked, or overcooked boiled meat. A similar small horn is on display in the National Museum of the American Revolution (see: this link to the National Museum of the American Revolution). In the museum it is listed as a salt horn, but some researchers believe these horns were also used for laudanum and opium, as well used for snuff (ground tobacco). The horn is overall 3.375 inches long and at its widest part 0.75 inches in diameter.
