Städtische Repräsentation 16. bis 19. Jahrhundert

The Basel collection contains some important witnesses of municipal representation: on the one hand, two city trumpets by the Basel instrument maker Jacob Steiger from 1578 - they are also the oldest bugle-shaped trumpets still in existence-, on the other the oldest dated drums from 1571 and 1575.
Also exhibited is the drum on which the city drummer and town crier Jakob Beck accompanied himself at the announcement of the general mobilisation in 1870.

The Dance of the lion Basel drums P/C 1996; claves CD 50-9621 ‚Vogel Griff‘ is the day of the three Kleinbasel honorable associations Zum Greifen, Zum Rebhaus und Zur Hären. It takes place exclusively in the smaller part of the town on the right side of the Rhine on January 13th, 20th or 27th; should the date fall on a Sunday, the festivities are moved to the previous Saturday. The three figures ‚Vogel Griff‘, ‚Leu‘ and ‚Wild May‘ dance for their masters and other well-known Kleinbasel personalities, as well as in the streets and alleys, until late into the night.
