Gautrot Marquet Flugelhorn - pre Couesnon Monopole. Gautrot made musical instruments from 1845 to 1884 and gave his business to Amedee Couesnon in 1883, this is how the famous Couesnon brand began. According to the New Langwill Index in 1875 Gautrot registered the name of Gautrot Marquet as designating '1er choix' instruments. 25 years later the GM models (Gautrot Marquet) became the Monopole line of Couesnon. This one still plays and has a great sound, but it is more an instrument for collection than for a real player. it has dents and patches, the bell ring has been resoldered and it has 2 cracks on the bell (see pictures). Anyway i can still play music with this horn and it is a rare piece of history, that's the first time i find one.
I'm in France, the shipping costs to USA and Canada are $72. International bidders are welcom.
