Hello fellow collectors!
I was out today having lunch with my wife and browsing the antique shops. My wife came across this pair of vintage brass heralding horns and insisted that I buy them. Just kidding!! I would have bought them anyway:)
Anyway, these are pretty long. They're 45 1/2" long , including the mouth pieces. They do disassemble into to two pieces and the mouth pieces are removable as well.
The mouth pieces have a number 1 engraved into them and there are some letters engraved into each horn that read "REXC" and another letter that I can't quite make out.
One of these has a stainless steel sling for hanging your banner on. But, the other is missing it's sling. No worries though, as these were only $10.00 each. They were in pretty tarnished condition and I was able to give them a good polishing.
Thanks for stopping in to have a look!!!!
A BIG thanks to our CW friend fortapache for properly identifying these lovely horns as heralding horns.
