Rare Antique H. FIEHN OCARINA -D 12 - c. 1879 Sydney Exposition * flower tips*From what I’ve been able to find out, I believe that this ocarina dates to the late 1870's/1880's. Fiehn ocarinas were shown at the 1879 Exposition in Sydney & grew in popularity after that. The tips of the ocarina are gold-painted flowers. This ocarina has 2 gold seals impressed on the underside which are VERY difficult to decipher:The first appears to be the double circle emblem of the 1879 Exposition in Sydney (not readable).The other is the oval maker’s mark:

H. FIEHN
FAMOUS
MADE IN AUSTRIAThere is also a paper sticker/seal (partially gone) which I am unable to read. Impressed in the side is “D 12".CONDITION: The gold is worn - this includes the 2 gold seals as well as the gold-painted flower tips (ends of the ocarina). There are also areas/streaks (particularly on the top) where the black finish is damaged & the clay shows through. (See pictures.)This ocarina is in playable condition with a mellow tone. There are no chips or cracks that I can see.It measures 8-1/2" x 5".NO RETURNS. Please ask any questions BEFORE offerding.Payment due at end of sale. I will ship item as soon as payment clears my Paypal account.PAYPAL ONLY!!!! U.S buyers ONLY- WILL ONLY SHIP TO U.S.
