Bell garland on NMM 3601, Trumpet by Johann Wilhelm Hass, 
ca. 1710-1720

Nürnberg was a great center for metal-working of all kinds, as evidenced by the magnificent bell garland of the NMM 3601, trumpet by Johann Wilhelm Hass, ca. 1710-1720. Note the cast angels and scallop design in repoussť, as well as the rabbit (Hase is the German word for hare) which is the Haas family symbol. Unlike the engraving shown here, the rabbit looks back over his shoulder (to the right) on instruments made by Hass' son and the grandson.
