This is a beautiful Frank Holton & Co. Chicago "New Proportion" Couturier Model cornet, built in 1910 (Serial #10902). It is silver plated with gold plated trim (valve caps, stems, finger buttons, water keys, logo engraving and bell interior wash). The plating is in excellent condition for its age! There are no major dents or damage to the instrument (just a few minor dings). The main slide to #3 casing contact point appears to have been resoldered at some point.
It just received our Ultrasonic Cleaning, synthetic valve alignment, complete pressure test and is ready to go. The valves and slides move freely. Comes in an older Blessing wood shell case that is in fair condtion. Does not include a mouthpiece.
