New acquisition...

Post by bisontuba »

HI-
Just picked this up....complete all brass, no garland, 34” high, 8.5” bell English Bass Horn with neck and mthpce, 6 hole, 4 key. Very dirty....I think unmarked, but will know after restoration. c. Very early 19th C in the Germanic style. Bought as ‘wall art!’
