21 August 2004 I think this is an Ophecleide. If you see a wooden instrument like this with a brass bell, it's now sometimes called a Russian Bassoon, but it's really a very old type of instrument. Apparently still played by some bands until pretty recently tho, but the display case at the Met didn't mention that.
