I am pretty much convinced this is a relac, also I am inclined to think it should have been originally silver plated though thought I would ask your opinion? I suppose it could have been heavily polished.

yes, it is and yes probably was silver plated and the silver has been removed. I’ve seen these things often

If you are looking at buying this. Don’t. If you already have it. It is what it is.

I saw it and did initially think to buy but then looked closely and sadly it is not for me even though I do like them.

No question it's a relac, as others have pointed out. It's really a shame someone would grind the silver plate away and lacquer the horn. Silver plate is very durable and looks great.
