Antique Marceau & Co shepherd's crook cornet
This brass is no longer for sale (sold on 2008-07-26)
Price : US $57.78
An antique shepherd's crook cornet in Bb marked 'Marceau & Co.'. As I understand it this mark was a trade name used by Sears Roebuck & Co. on instruments imported from Czekoslavakia. This horn probably dates around the turn of the century. As far as these old horns go this is a pretty nice one. Light surface denting and scratches consistent with age, overall very straight and clean. Raw brass overall. A leaf spring spit-valve, helps to date it. The valves and slides are all free, the valves are surprisingly clean and tight. With the exisiting tuning bit it sits nicely on modern Bb. Sorry, no case or mouthpiece, a standard cornet mouthpiece seems to fit nicely. Please view the photos, a picture is worth a thousand words.
Fixed shipping rate of $15 to the US, if it should turn out to be a bit less I'll refund the difference, International shipping to be calculated. Payment by Paypal to be received within 10 days of auction end.
