1914 Frank Holton Chicago New Proportion Silver Cornet With Mouthpiece & Slides
Up for sale here is an excellent 105 year old Frank Holton Chicago New Proportions silver plated cornet, with shepherds crook. The serial number is 25, xxx made in 1914 at 169 Gladys Avenue in Chicago. The 0- bore code on the second valve casing indicates a. This horn plays amazingly and has a silky, smooth tone. Its not as brassy as a lot of horns I’ve played over the years. I played A Whole New World for my wife earlier on this bad boy, and lets just say old Aladdin wishes he could swoon a lady just so. I had all of the “major” dents removed (there weren’t any that were TOO bad, but a few in the bell and the crook). I didn’t bother with the minor ones because there arent that many and they arent super noticeable. Its more a flat spot in the curve of the pipe rather than a jagged dent. I only noticed it as my finger touched it as i was putting the horn in the case. The plating wear is very minimal, limited mostly to just the first valve casing where the thumb grips the cornet and the third valve casing. Again, even this isnt extensive. Unfortunately, the valves show some wear and most of the original plating is worn away. BUT, the valves still glide smoothly and are very, very responsive. They water keys need to be re-corked, but theyre still plenty functional. It appears that the springs have been replaced sometime in the last several years as they still have a lot of springiness left. The horn comes with a mouthpiece (unmarked), a second set of slides (im guessing they tune the horn to “A”), as well as what I assume is not the original case. The original case would have had fittings for the additional A slides and this case does not. It is, however, totally in line with the old Holton cases and im almost positive it is in fact a Holton case. The case is in good shape but is 100ish years old, keep that in mind. All of the latches funtion properly as well as the hinges. The handle looks like it broke a long, long time ago and was repaured with lots of tape. It functions just like a good handle though. Take a good look at the pictures and don’t hesitate to ask any questions! Im more than happy to help. Also, check out my other listings. Ive got some GREAT vintage/antique horns listed that are clean, highly functional, and ready for a great home! 1914 Frank Holton Chicago New Proportions Silver Cornet W/ Mouthpiece & Slides.
