Serpent c.1830 to be auctioned
Fri Jun 8, 2018 10:35pm

A keyless English serpent c1830 associated with St Mary's Luxborough, Somerset, is being auctioned by Gardiner Houlgate on 15th June. It formed part of the instrument collection of my late husband, Maurice Byrne and he bought it in 1962. His notes indicate that it had been lent to the church by the Vicary family who ran the Royal Oak pub in Luxborough. Here is a link to the auction house:…/mi140618/index.html
It would be great to for the instrument to find a new enthusiastic owner! Best wishes, Maura Barnett
