comment Bought this on the spur of the moment when closing on Ebay. The trumpet pictures made it look almost black. Seems very like my Mears example but is unmarked. The item is probably old but made from the same source as #229. It is quite poorly shaped as though the moulding distorted after removeal from the mould. Also this one has an old material earpiece.
