Nice Original French Made Civil War Type Long Company Infantry Bugle, COUESNON & Co. Original, standard size/shape Civil War type Infantry company bugle.
This is the type USED BY AN INFANTRY BUGLER IN CAMP AND COMBAT TO HELP THE TROOPS IN MARCHES AND IN CONVEYING ORDERS FROM COMPANY OFFICERS. Quite typical of a Civil War bugle, given the length (19 without the mouthpiece). Also, given the French manufacture, as fairly large numbers of Civil War bugles were imported from France. Bell diameter is 5 3/4.This one is nice and you can see where the bell section was attached to the horn. This bugle is in very good condition overall, with some honest wear from use. Has nice patina and overall aged appearance. It does not have the original mouthpiece with it.
Very nice to find an original Civil War type Infantry bugle in ANY condition these days. This is a good one for display in a variety of collections. IT IS ONE OF THE NICEST MUSICIAN PIECES FOR ANY COLLECTION AS IT REALLY CAPTURES THE LOOK AND FEEL OF THE ARMIES, SOLDIERS, & SOUNDS OF THE CIVIL WAR. Here is a great chance to get one!!
