before the restoration 200!

at the occasion of the 100th anniversary of his death.

the Ottensteiner signature on the bell  (top) - The G.(Georg) Ottensteiner horn, used by Franz Strauss for the greater part of his career. It belongs to a distant relative of Franz Strauss (from his nephews line). The horn has been restored now & sealed. (top right) 

The tuning slide (below left), the third slide shown on the picture is an incorrect one. There is another slide with the appropriate length. Bell joint (at right) - valve keys (below at right)
