Museum Quality Chinese Sheng Mouth Organ, 19th C

An extremely rare Chinese Sheng (mouth organ) of finest workmanship. This 19th century masterpiece still has its original complete label; there is currently two of these instruments in the collection of the Boston Museum of Art, link provided on request. The material consist of wood, bamboo, and ox bone. These rarely ever come to market and almost all of them are in museum collections, rare to find them in the condition shown, even rarer to find one with its complete label. In pristine condition, it measures a little over 14.5" high.
