Era: Mid-Late 20th Century
Details: still works great
Two posts in one day? Sounds unheard of, but I felt February needed an extra post to give it an edge over January as we venture into March. Anyway this is a cool musical piece that was given to me by my grandmother. It's an old music tuner. The edge of the piece has a hole where each letter in the scale is where you would blow through it and the pitch would come out. I'm no expert but it looks like it is an F-to-F Chromatic Pitch Pipe. The writing on it says: "INST.-MASTER-KEY-CHROM.PITCH-" on the obverse and the reverse has some more info but it's old and a little rusty (it's silver-colored on the opposite side). What I attempt to make out is "PAT. USA MAY 1925 - MARCH 17 31" along with "MADE IN GERMANY."
