Really cool. I wonder if they kept caps in that compartment.

The best flat horn I think that I have seen. Very nice! The butt compartment is especially unique and the horn shows a high level of craftsmanship in its ornamentation and finish.
Thank you for showing it here.

That's a neat little horn.  I love the sliding lid.  What kind of catch/release does it have? 

Thanks for sharing,
Ken

I have never before seen a  flat horn with such a butt compartment. If this flat horn is antique,  I think,  an origin in central Europe or eastern Europe might  be possible or seem likely to be so.

 Here is a contemporary example by Ron Vail, you will have to scroll down the page away to see it but there is some nice work along the way.

I have a flat "ball" horn with a sliding door in the base for caps. Made by a friend 20 years ago.
