I'd be really interested in finding out who the engraver is. The handwork is absolutely beautiful.

Also the detail work in coloring it black everywhere else must have been extremely time consuming....

Wow! I've seen a Yamaha 103 done up in similar fashion. It was all silver plated with floral engraving all over. Someone sure put in a lot of hours!

I'm curious if anyone can provide info about the original vintage of this horn. It is a bit tempting and just down the road.
