Wonky and Worn

By cattyal  
Everything in this picture is either worn out, wonky or on its way out (the grapes). Ok the cherries are still good ......

Yet another valuable antique - sorry piece of junk - added to my collection today - this time the trumpet - a very knackered Antoine Courtois which is in two bits, missing bits, very very worn out and cost me a whole 3 - that'll do me nicely.

I'm not entirely sure what I'll do with it but it's mine and that's all that matters.......

Typically you Al.
I actually think that that knackered 'Trumpet' is some kind of knackered 'French Horn.'
That's not really important but it might make a difference to a future image title.
And it's still only worth three quid.

Thanks folks - I could do better but not today Smile

Thanks for the correction Bren - I know next to nothing - well nothing - about horns/trumpets etc - except a vague idea of which is which - and not a very accurate idea at that Smile I don't think this one would even be worth 50p for scrap but I'm happy with it Smile

Well having had a bit of a look online I'm happy to settle for trumpet or cornet - the difference between two is mostly down to size, bore and sound - and I'm certainly not going to worry too much about it Smile

It actually looks better in this pic than it does in real life !

Very good, smoke coming from the candle would have been the icing in the cake

Thanks again folks - and a late thank you for the HC Pete - apologies for the delay!

I know, I should have lit the candle - I'll try to do better next time!
