Boar Head Drinking Horn

Dümler & Breiden - mold 129

From the collection of Andrew Ives

1.25 Liter drinking horn depicting Diana (Roman goddess of the hunt), 2 hunting scenes, and a boar's head at the base of the horn.
The price/description listing on the SCI index catalog for D&B identifies mold 129 as: Trinkhorn (drinking horn), antike Diana (ancient Diana), Jagden (hunt), gr. Wildschweinkopf (large wild boar head).
The mold for this piece was designed and signed by Peter Dümler (active 1883 - 1907).

According to TBSL article "Collector's Guide to Dümler & Breiden Beer Steins" by Frank Loevi, an approximate date for the mold design can be obtained by dividing the model number by 35, and then adding the rounded-up quotient to the 1883 founding date of Dümler & Breiden.
129/35 + 1883 = c.1887
