1859 Alexander Cartwright Sterling Silver Presentaion Fireman's Horn

1859 Alexander Cartwright Sterling Silver Presentaion Fireman's Horn

He is known as the "Father of Baseball" and may be the man responsible for the game being played at an angle after drawing a diagram of a diamond back in the days of Abner Doubleday. A volunteer firefighter both in New York and Hawaii, Cartwright was presented with this Sterling silver-plated fireman's horn that is inscribed: "A token of esteem from the Members of Mechanic Engine Co. No. 2 to A.J. Cartwright Esq. Chief Engineer of the Honolulu Fire Department - Honolulu June 4th, 1859." The horn is beautifully engraved with a fleur-de-lis pattern throughout. Comes with a letter detailing its provenance from Alexander Joy Cartwright IV, as well as a photo of Cartwright holding this exact trumpet. It is in EX-MT to NRMT condition with some slight tarnishing.
