Medieval Drinking horns have a long history and been used by many different cultures. You often see that they have been used in ceremonies from weddings to burials. These horns were also used as a token of welcomed to honored guests. In many medieval ballads and legends, where women handing out a drinking horn, are mentioned frequently. Sometimes the horn is filled with poison, and there seems to be a magical element in the use of drinking horns. Our Renaissance Rampant Lion Drinking Horn has been hand carved and polished. The lion is a common charge in heraldry. It traditionally symbolizes bravery, valor, strength, and royalty, because historically it has been regarded as the king of beasts. A "rampant lion" is depicted in profile standing erect with fore-paws raised. The position of the hind legs varies according to local custom: the lion may stand on both hind legs, braced wide apart, or on only one, with the other raised ready to strike. With having such deep roots throughout history who wouldn't want a drinking horn of their very own? The Medieval Lion Rampant Drinking Horn makes a perfect gift or can be used for costumes, plays, and re-enactments.
The horn stand is made if twisted forged iron.

Following 5 steps are being generally followed during the manufacturing process of drinking horns:
a) Selecting an appropriate horn.
b) Sanding the horn from the outside.
c) Washing with hot water.
d) Coating with glass coat lacquer from the inside to make it 100% safe for usage.
e) Polishing.

All horns are boiling water proof and are polished to give a smooth finish.

Item may have minor scratches due to buffing and natural material. When measuring this item we measure it at the spine. This is an all-natural item and you will need to coat inside with beeswax. In order to do this you will melt the beeswax and pour it in the horn. Coat the inside evenly and pour out the excess wax. Please wash with a gentle detergent before coating the inside and polish with vegetable oil to keep it from drying out. And from time to time you will want to use beeswax to coat the inside to keep from cracking. Please do not use hot liquids in this item. The variations in their shapes and colors can only be made by nature; thus a horn may have natural blemishes which will not affect its functionality but does verify its authenticity.
