This horn is very unusual and of great historical interest since it is an "omnitonic" horn which preceded Gautrot Brevete's valve horn. It has one or two valves without pistons or rotary valves which enable it to play in two keys. Reliable sources state that it dates from the early part of Gautrot's production(mid1840's) and is unique since it is a "semi-valved horn"
