Lot details

China. The mouthpiece of brass, decorated with two pierced, globular elements between two discs, the lower disc with a lobed rim, the wood handle carved with outward scalloping between the finger holes, and a brass bell. The interior of the brass bell with an illegible mark.

Provenance: From the collection of Tony Bingham, United Kingdom. Tony Bingham is a retired dealer of antique musical instruments. He and his wife Irene opened several stores in London beginning in the 1960s, where they were selling antique instruments to museums, private collectors, and musicians, for more than 40 years. He also published several books on the history of musical instruments, including The New Langwill Index, a Dictionary of Musical Wind-Instrument Makers and Inventors.
Condition: Excellent condition with minor wear, traces of usage and minuscule nicks, the brass bell loose. Nice patina overall.

Weight: 112.8 g
Dimensions: Length 34.2 cm

The haidi is the smallest and highest-pitched version of the suona, a double reed instrument that was introduced to China around the beginning of the 16th century and takes its name from the Middle Eastern zurna. The player, whose mouth completely covers the small reeds, uses circular breathing (through the nose) to maintain a constant tone. It was first used by the military, but today it is played both in ensemble and as a solo instrument.

Literature comparison:
Compare a closely related haidi, illustrated in Haags Gemeentemuseum, Musial instruments from the East- and South-East Asian mainland, The Hague, 1989, p. 211, no. 182. Compare also a suona in the collection of The Metropolitan Museum with the accession number 89.4.20.


十八至十九世紀海笛
中國。由雙簧哨子、蕊子、桿子和銅碗四部分組成。銅碗上有印,但已模糊不清。

來源:英國Tony Bingham收藏。Tony Bingham是一位退休的古董樂器經銷商。他和他的妻子Irene上世紀六十年代初在倫敦開設了幾家商店。四十多年來,他們一直在向博物館、私人收藏家和音樂家出售古董樂器。他還出版了幾本關於樂器歷史的書籍,包括《新朗威爾索引》,一部音樂管樂器製造商和發明家詞典。
品相:狀況極好,有輕微磨損、使用痕跡和微小的刻痕,黃銅哨子鬆動。整體包漿渾厚。

重量:112.8克
尺寸:長34.2厘米

最初的嗩吶是流傳於波斯、阿拉伯一帶的樂器,就連嗩吶這個名稱,也是古代波斯諾Surnā的音譯。嗩吶大約在公元三世紀在中國出現,新疆拜城克孜爾石窟第38窟中的伎樂壁畫已有吹奏嗩吶形象。海笛是嗩吶的最小和最高音調的版本,它最初是在軍隊使用的,但今天它既可以作為合奏樂器演奏,也可以作為獨奏樂器演奏。

文獻比較:
比較非常相近的海笛,見海牙美術館,《Musial instruments from the East- and South-East Asian mainland》,海牙, 1989年,頁211,編號182。比較另一件嗩吶, 收藏於大都會藝術博物館,編號89.4.20。

Important Changes to Our Terms and Conditions

As part of our ongoing efforts to keep our auctions fair and transparent, we recently updated our terms and conditions. We encourage you to read through these updates carefully (§34-50) to make sure you understand them. These updates are specifically designed to protect all serious and committed buyers from bidding against non-payers, who attempt to inflate prices without the intent of paying their auction bills.

For further reading about non-payers at auction, go here: https://www.zacke.at/aboutnonpayers/.

Main points include:

  • Bidders must complete their due diligence and clarify all questions about the objects before the auction. After the auction, Zacke will not answer questions from bidders unless the purchase price has been paid in full. Of course, this does not apply to questions concerning shipping, insurance, customs, etc.
  • A sale cancellation of any kind after the fall of the hammer is not possible. The only exception to this fundamental rule is our guarantee of authenticity [the Guarantee].
  • A Guarantee Claim, however, can only be raised after the purchase price has been paid in full by the buyer and within 45 days after the auction day.

If you have any questions about our policies, please contact us at office@zacke.at.

By placing a bid, you agree to our Terms of Auction and Terms and Conditions.
