Probably Persian, but could also be Turkish. These were used in the orient many, may years ago.

This type of all metal horn can also be found in North Africa, esp. the Maghreb region. It is also described as work from the Tuareg nomades. Mostly used in combination with the traditional guns, called Moukhalah. (Sometimes with a Miquelet lock)
