Gautrot • 1890s

While unmarked, this pocket cornet was unquestionably made by the prolific French company Gautrot, and was sold under many other names in addition to Gautrot, including Jaubert, Lyon & Healy, and J.W. Pepper.

Gautrot was eventually absorbed by Couesnon, although it is not clear how long Couesnon continued to market cornets with the Gautrot name.

In my experience, it is probably the most common of the true vintage pocket cornets.


Length (shank removed): 8.625”
