The Clippertone,Hawkes & Son,Excelsior Silver Plated trumpet in Bb/A
- Source: eBay UK
This vintage trumpet dates from the 1920s and has lovely floral decorations engraved on the bell. There is a spare slide to change the pitch to A. Serial number 51522 engraved with the maker's name and address in Picadilly Circus. Inherited from a bandmaster but has not been played in recent years and I am unable to state how it would perform as a musical instrument now. Original carry case, now looking shabby, but this is an unusual item; reluctant sale of treasured heirloom.
