Hunting horn

A copper and German silver hunting horn with integral mouthpiece. From the form of the inscription and the address, the instrument almost certainly dates from the period 1888–96, when the firm was under the leadership of Augustus Charles Köhler (d.1890) or his son John Buxton Kohler (d.1907).
