Original Imperial German WWI Military Bugle Bearing Prussian Crest by W. Piering of Döbeln - circa 1914

Item Description

Original Item: Only One Available. This German Military bugle is of all brass construction with nickel silver fittings, typical of German brass instruments. Showing use it bears numerous small dents with some scrapes, but is absolutely authentic. It comes complete with its original mouth piece (removable) and two suspension rings and with a very pleasant tarnished finish overall.

The German Silver bell krantz is in good condition, as it is a harder alloy than brass, and so it would not be dented as easily. The side of the bell on the left side is stamped with the maker information:


The Prussian Arms in an Oval shield displays a Spread Eagle wearing a Crown with F.R. to center, with the eagle carrying a Sword and a Scepter in either claw. This is soldered onto the bell as standard.

This bugle is one of the better examples we have seen, and still rings clear if one knows how to use it. It looks to be made entirely of seamed brass tubing, with the brazing lines still clear.

A romantic item from the terrible First World War, ready to display or even use!
