Quick question--did Chinoiserie horns happen? I have seen some antique furniture in Chinese lacquer and gold, and of course we all want to find a big Brunswick or Victrola painted in it, but in the horn era did they paint the horns that color?

I have seen the Mega paper horns of around 1906 in the pictures and they definitely sported a neat Asian-inspired finish. They were also made in Japan, which is cool. But did regular metal horns ever end up with that neat coloring?

Thanks for looking and if you have one in your collection, I'd love to see a picture.

I have seen Chinoiserie paper horns and various cabinets but don't remember seeing a decorated metal horn. That just my personal experience and could certainly be incorrect. Jerry Blais
