Red Mahogany Wood Phonograph Horn... Very rare horn! Only one that I have ever seen like it. I have a copy of the patent for this horn that was granted by the US Patent office in September 1904. This horn was purchased from an elderly couple out of New York that had been in their possession for years and unfortunately has encountered some water damage over the years but not too awfully bad.  This patent was issued to the Ruggiero brothers in September 1904. Their claim was that the wooden horn eliminated the metallic sound and bad vibrations that came from metal horns. The horn measures 36 inches in length by 13 1/2 inches on the width of the bell outside. The bell of the horn measures 11 inches on the inside. It has had some water damage at some point in its life, but I never tried to restore it. It apparently had a metal tip of some sort on the narrow end as well. This is a one-of-a-kind prototype horn with the original patent. (Copy of original patent will be included with the sale) Probably never will see another. Looking for that something that is original, one of a kind? This is it! Don’t let this one get away! Any questions, feel free to ask. ***The crane is not included in the sale with the horn.
