A Limited Edition Tanglewood Plate with Mellophone


To fill up wall space and personalize my home office, I like to collect various horn-related items to adorn the walls. While some people like to collect horns or horn texts, I like to find unusual items with French horns in them that work as wall ornaments.

Regular readers may already know of a few items I have written about previously:

A few years ago my sister-in-law found this bright blue plate at a consignment shop while out shopping with my wife. The plate is enameled with a high-gloss coating and painted on its surface is a classic right-handed mellophone.

On the reverse side is information on this item and its limited edition number.

It is not a extraordinary item by any means, but as one part of a growing collection it is a nice splash of color on the wall – sort of a blue plate special.
