Thighbone Trumpet



Thighbone trumpet. The mouthpiece is bound with a brass cover decorated with bands of flowers, repeating 'c' scrolls and waves. The end of the trumpet is covered with leather that has been stitched in place and then finished with two bands of brass that form a 'T' shape, again these are decorated with 'c' scrolls and wave patterns. Attached to the mouthpiece and the base are brass loops that hold a tablet woven strap of navy blue edged with red in place.
