Here comes a rare french antique cornopean, which was the ancestor of the modern cornet. The valve system was a new invention in the earlier 19th century, the way it worked can be studied with those original valves.There are no missing parts except the short leadpipe, which can be replaced by any older french cornet leadpipe.The tuning slide moves freely, the other slides are stuck. The valves seem to be in working order, they move freely - it's very interesting to see that the second valve is the thickest, due to 2 air passages (valve 1 and 3 only have one).There is a patch on the main crook and on valve slide two. No visible corrosion or red hot, but some damaged aeras with thin cracks in the metal.
On the bell, it says: "Gautrot Breveté à Paris" and an icon that has G-A and a littly anchor.
GAUTROT PARIS was 1845 specializing in brass musical instruments and claimed to be the most important factory of its kind in Europe, according to the New Langwill Index of musical wind instruments.Famous constructions were next to the Cornopean the Orphocleide.
This is definitely a precious collectors item - nice to have for every serious collector of antique european brass musical instruments. It eventually even could be made up to playability by an experienced brass repair shop. Check all the pictures to get an impression of this rare piece.I ship from Switzerland to worldwide, shipping to the States is $ 49, ask for other international destinations.
