Made from Buffalo and Cattle Horns. It is extremely difficult to find Horn Tables. Circa 1880s
Charles Fletcher and John Crane, both of St. Louis, made furniture as a business. Makers, such as Wenzel Friedrich, Charles Puppe and William Mittmann, all of San Antonio, made furniture in larger quantities over a period of several years. The Appel Bros. of Houston made horn chairs but, seemingly, in fewer numbers. To capitalize on the craze, some home furnishing companies added a line of cattle horn furniture by modifying some of their existing pieces. Most horn furniture and items made from horn were never marked, and the makers may never be known.
