ANTIQUE FRENCH HORN BY HERBERT FRITZ KNOPF


 



You are looking at an antique French horn manufactured
by Herbert Fr. Knopf – Markneukirchen. This item came from an estate that
included a trunk of the same age that belonged to: Otto Fritzsche, affiliated with
the Damrosch Opera Co. NY. I assume that this professional quality instrument
must have belonged to him. This horn is in good condition. There are no major
dents or deep scratches. The mouthpiece is missing. It has been cared for well
over the years but could use a good cleaning. This horn comes with the original
hard case. I do not know very much about horns so please email me if you have
any questions. The horn measures 12” at the longest point and 13” at the widest
point. The horn will be very securely packaged to ensure that it arrives
safely. We will ship worldwide. Email me the zip code or country you would like to have the item sent to and I can give you your shipping options. Please do not hesitate to ask any questions.

Through emails and conversations with the antique dealer who purchased this horn
from an estate I have learned that the woman who's house this horn came
out of had the maiden name Fritchie and that either her father or grandfather
was a musician. There is also a travel trunk with his name and the opera house
name on it that I have just listed as well as a music stand from the same
estate. Please check my sellers list to see these items. Following are some
excerpts from an email about Otto Fritchie that was sent to me: Before playing%0
