Perley Prance

I found this little guy in a box of photos I bought on e-Bay. His name really was Perley Prance.  I have photos of him at various ages, as well as other family members. Anyway, I thought his image was deserving of the vintage shirt collar Julia Noyes picked up for me.  On display and for sale at Noyes Gallery in Lincoln, NE.

oh yeah...

Mysterious Bell-Shaped Thing

Does anyone know what this is?

This came from my dad's estate.  I don't know why I grabbed it other than that I thought it was cool.

My guess is that it is made of tin, and maybe it's a fancy vintage bullhorn for a marching band. There does seem to be a place on the small end to put a mouth piece.

Any ideas?
