Antique Omani Gun Powder Horn Silver with chain “TALAHIQ” – Superb. Silver gun powder box, Taliq or Talahiq. Gun powder was put in from the top and released at the bottom when the lever on the side of the main body was pulled. This model of powder box was used to put powder in the powder-pan (very small bowl) at the end of the barrel next to a tiny hole going inwards to the powder and the bullet. The powder in the pan was lighted by the fuse and subsequently the gun fired. The weight of this item is 160 grams and its length is 18 cm.
