Trombone in 18C Trophy

Today I added this image and caption to the Trombone History Timeline (18th century). Although they are far from common, other examples of trombones in trophy settings (decorative clusters), include one in the Vatican (1517-19), another in a church in Venice (c. 1600), and another on the organ shutters of an Amsterdam church (1686).

c. 1765—Liége, Belgium: A wood carving of a trophy at the Grand Séminaire de Liége includes a trombone (see below image; public domain).liege trophy
