The instrument follows the Nuremberg tradition of trumpet making with its structural setup and decoration of cast brass putti of angels, embossed and engraved ferrules and garlands, glass stones, et cetera. Toward the end of the eighteenth century, Nuremberg lost its former significance, and trumpet making shifted to other places. Originally pitched in C, the tube was shortened to a higher pitch in the nineteenth century.
