J.W. Pepper (Importer) • no. 11819 • 1890’s
This Pepper pocket was undoubtedly made by Gautrot, who made them for many dealers, including Lyon & Healy.
It required extensive restoration, which I did (see before and during photos at lower left).
In raw brass, this cornet had its valves rebuilt by Anderson plating and is a very good player.
