This finish was Conn's most expensive, and was only available upon special order. Normally these horns were heavily gold plated, and had richly engraved scenes, mother of pearl inlays. They were produced before the stock market crash of 1929. Silver plated models, or silver plated versions with gold key work/highlights were available upon request. This horn is obviously one of these specially requested finish horns.
