TIBETAN BUDDHIST COPPER TRUMPET (Item No. Trumpet 03)

Price: £95.00 (including postage Worldwide)

Origin: Nepal or Tibet
Age: 50 - 150
Length: 370mm approx

A delightful copper and white metal Buddhist trumpet in a stylised form of human thighbone kangling, the trumpet evenhas a double hole at the 'knuckle' end of the instrument like a bone kangling has. The instrument is in good condition and has a wonderful loud sound. It has a chain fixed near both ends.

This is a beautifully made old kangling but it does not sound very strongly - it might need cleaning inside, and I am certain with a little work it could be made to sound better that it currently does.While there are many modern reproductions of Tibetan dragon headed metal horns available nowadays, this is an original one of rare design.

A good instrument for ritual practice.

Small ritual conch shell trumpet in good condition.

Shells like this are placed on altars to represent the offering of music. The shell is set into low grade silver and set with faux turquoise and red coral.

The conch is pretty but does not have a strong sound - it would be useable but would be better placed on an altar as an offering.
