Antique Bassoon Signed John Hasler London, c. 1830
Here is a beautiful antique bassoon, that measures approx. 49 inches tall. It is signed, at least twice, " Hasler London ". It is in as found, undisturbed condition, and looks to be complete. It is in need of conservation/restoration, and promises to be a real beauty when refurbished and the brass polished. I have posted many pictures to show the details.
I found this in an early Hingham, Mass. estate many years ago, and I'm afraid that I know very little about it. I did discover one by the same maker in the National Music Museum, University of South Dakota, Vermillion, S.D., cat. # NMM5920. The web site gave dimensions, dated it to c. 1830, but showed no picture, and didn't say much more about it.
