Vintage 1930s "Superino" Ocarina

Super rare ocarina. The World's first wooden ocarina. Invented by a 16 year old boy in the 1930s, he and his friends made these out of Walnut, Oak and Mahogany glued together. Made approximately 500 of these altogether. Also known as a "Potato Bug" Ocarina, after these kids formed a musical group playing these under that name and went on to considerable fame.
