BW 1594, Norweb 8761.

Nearly Very Fine, sl. rough surfaces, probably a river find.  Rare.  Ex Dora Harris collection (bought by her in 1980).  This piece is finer than the poor Norweb specimens and the specimen in the Museum of London, which was used for the entry in Berry (1978).

Samuel Pepys mentions the Trumpet several times in his diary.
