This is on a presentation horn. Interesting it has the names of some US cities, Baltimore, Washington. I suspect its some type of trophy presented in the US. I do not see a date. Also attached pic of maker mark. Thank you in advance for help in translating the 2 different panels.

Forward turners have an interesting history in the USA. I know Pittsburgh still has a society. It says on the presentation that it is a symbol of the love of german gymnastics given either from or to the turners in Baltimore to or from the turners in Washington DC
Here are couple interesting links about them I would guess its late 19th or early 20th c century piece Maryland turners

It says

The gymnastic-association "Vorwaerts" ("go ahead") - the umlaut "ae" still cannot be written correctly here in the forum.
at Baltimore
to the brother-association , "Columbia"
in Washington
as a sign of german,
gymnastic love (love is here meant in the sense of sympathy).

Regards,
