Bugle in C

Thomas Key British
William Trayls British

On view at The Met Fifth Avenue in Gallery 680

Engravings on the bell indicate that the bugle was made in the year 1811 (represented by the letter Q) by the silversmith William Trayls (initials WT). Other marks represent the sterling standard (lion passant), the London Assay Office (leopard head), and the excise duty mark (sovereign's head). Also engraved on the bell is the name Major Drummond of the 104th Regiment, who presumably was the first owner of the instrument.
