I have inherited a trumpet that is a mystery to me. I hope someone can help me identify it. I'm a former trombone player, so this is a little new to me.
It is silver. On the bell is the word "ARTIST" all in caps. Above and below the words are shapes that look like flower petals. The design is drawn in zig zags.
On each valve is #1, #2 and #3. On the back of the 2nd valve is #661637. I can find no other marks.
The case is brown leather like with bright blue velvet interior, but not sure is it original.
The trumpet is in very nice condition, but one value sticks a bit. I'm just wondering what this thing is.
I appreciate any help you can give.
