    Description

    Double Twist Brass Bugle, Circa 1860-1870. Engraved maker's mark on the bell, "The R. Wurlitzer Co./ Manuf./ Cin. O." Brass floating rim, 15.5" overall, silvered brass mouthpiece, dovetailed seam. A few scattered dents but overall excellent with nice patina. Absolutely no bends or cracks. Retains the original rope like cotton cord. Originally red, now badly faded but very sound, presumably designating artillery. Nice U.S. military bugle with Wurlitzer (of later Jukebox fame) commencing business in 1860.
