Hi! This is Robert here, I'd be happy to help with this one.

Is this two different instruments?

If so, could you attach a photo of the second one, the one with the oval label. Also, what does that label say, the photo is a little blurry to make out the wording.

Many thanks,

Thanks for the wording "Made in Pakistan" That's very helpful. And for the extra photo. I see what you have now.

Leave this with me and I'll have a full answer and a value for you as soon as I can.

Many thanks,

So here's what I can tell you about these two:

(1) Brass bugle

Double twist style, vintage bugle with cord, unknown maker, early to mid-20th century.

Full retail/replacement/insurance value: $80.

(2) Car/Taxi/Carriage horn -Made in Pakistan.

Old 1930's - 1940s vintage brass horn, trademarked "Champion" or "Regal" and with a "Made in Pakistan" oval tag. It's missing its rubber bulb which would have looked like this originally. However most are like this, and new bulbs can be obtained if need be.

These are quite collectible: full retail/replacement/insurance value (as is): $50.

Expect 30% - 40% of these figures if you were to sell at auction or on line (eBay etc)

I do hope this helps!

Best wishes,
