Here's a Thomas Zach ocarina from my collection. It was made in the late 1800's, and I think it was made in either Germany or Austria. It comes with its own case.






Added on Feb 21, 2015:
Thomas Zach - Born 1812 in Zínany, Czech Republic. Died 1892 in Vienna, Austria. Trained with J. B. Dvorak and A. Sitt in Prague. Worked in Budapest with J. B. Schweitzer, succeeding to his business in 1857. He sold the shop to Schunda 1862, moving to Subotica, Croatia, 1863, Pécs, Hungary 1864 and Bucharest, Romania 1865. There he was appointed luthier to Prince Sturdza supplying the court with a large number of instruments. In 1869 he made his final move to Vienna, where he develop and sustained a very high reputation.

It's so beautiful. I'm not into collecting antiques but I definitely like this one. Nice find, Wollemi. Where did you get it?

A rather poorly tuned cicada ocarina. No idea who made it, but it was my first.

And now I've started making them as well. :)

I feel hungry.

Do you get them in plain as well as milk? Maybe with raisins or hazelnuts?

Chocolate seems to be the topic of the day. You have a real knack for changing how I look at things, Jack. XD

Didn't someone try that at one point? It'd be neat to play a tune or two, then eat it. :3
