How were these achieved? Are there any modern manufacturers producing horns with these finishes, or are there any platers doing this kind of work?

The is bead blasted or sand blasted before plating. I think Chujerry (here at SOTW) may have some insight.

VMI used to make them under a few different brand names(Chicago Jazz, Allora, etc.)up until they stopped production a little while back. Yamaha has the shotblast Z's, Rampone and Cazzini has the "polished" silver and gold plate.........
