A while ago, I featured a picture of my rusty old garden incinerator, and mentioned that a patina like that would be for saxplayers to literally die for ! Well, here is a picture of an elderly Rampone & Cazzini (circa 1904), enjoying the Devon sunshine, owned and photographed against a very substantial door by Lewis Pelham.
What a beaut ! With a patina that has taken many decades to produce. I just love the slimline, minimalistic look of vintage tenors – lean and mean And a very beautiful door, of course ! Just a folly, built by Lewis……
With, I think, an Otto Link, NY ?
– since been told by Lewis that it’s a Jody Jazz mouthpiece, but with a Link lig – oops !
