This is not a modern reproduction but a genuinely old maritime tool from the era of sailing ships.

One of the more unusual items I've offered in the last few years is this little brass speaking trumpet.
It's the real thing – an antique speaking horn – but it's only 7.75 inches (20 c) tall, with a four-inch (10.5 cm) mouth.

This is not a modern reproduction but a genuinely old maritime tool from the era of sailing ships.

It is almost a miniature of a full-sized trumpet, yet is fully functional and would have been used by the coxswain of a ship's boat or liberty launch, a rowing team, or a ships officer relaying orders to top-men aloft from the deck.

Accompanying this brass trumpet is a little mahogany shelf with a brass mounting plate that the last owner had custom-made in order to display the piece.
