Painted Hunting horn
Posted: Sat Dec 02, 2017 9:12 am
I visited the old Saint John hospital in Bruges during the summer.
There I saw a 15th century painted hunting horn. Also called an Elephant.
Since my visit I am looking for more late medieval hunting horns that have been painted.
All the examples I have found so far are extensively decorated with carving.
Do you know of similar ivory hunting horns or can you give a lead to someone who knows more about these objects?
