"Boa constrictor" "Serpent" snake horn

Yesterday I went to a rock and roll 50's swapmeet.. You never know if you will find some cool car parts. Guess what.. Serpent snake horn. I immediately knew what it was. Check the eBay link..

Some other horns

    humm when you sell this on ebay you have enough money to finish youre car and buy a new project??

  2. They are certainly delightful but I would be very wary. There are lots of fakes being produced - in India I believe. I'm lucky enough to have found an old unrestored 1905 brass model with the flexible incised body but I must say that I'm wasn't aware that they ever made a solid metal version. Mine isn't the 'snake head' model but a 'horn bell' version they also offered at the same time . It does however have the crucial 'Boa Constrictor' British manufacturers patent mark.
