of the 1890's.
During the traildriving days and into
the early 1900's, the making of items from horn reached a high popularity. Furniture
companies added a sideline of horn furniture. Individuals, some on a large and others on a
small scale, began to make chairs, tables, halltrees, hatracks and other items from cattle
and buffalo horns. As thousands of horned cattle were shipped to various markets, their
horns became available and were made use of by individuals wanting to have a part in the
current horn fad. The finished products were as varied as the imagination of the makers.
