RARE 1900 WORLDS FAIR COUESNON MONOPOLE PARIS TRUMPET ITEM DESCRIPTION OFFERED FOR SALE is an exquisite and rare Couesnon Monopole Trumpet (? -I think it's a trumpet-If an expert knows, please let us know) Comes with Case, H.N. White Co Silver mouthpiece, music holder. Below is what is marked on the bell (also see photos of markings below) approx. age: c.1921 EXPOSITION UNIVERSELLE DE PARIS 1900 HORS CONCOURS MEMBRE DU JURY COUESNON & CIE FOURNISSEURS DES BEAUX-ARTS DU CONSERVATOIRE NATIONAL ET DE L'ARMEE 94 RUE D' ANCOULEME PARIS MONOPOLE 29810 21 Size without mouthpiece : 19.5" Size of mouthpiece: 3.25" I am not an expert on trumpets or coronets but I have taken many photos and will give you condition information the best I can. I played trombone and this trumpet plays nice! The only physical damage that I can see are a couple of very minor and shallow dents on the back side (see photo)-these are insignificant in my opinion. All the slides intact and work fine, the valves work smooth and fine-it looks like they have been recently re-corked, new springs, and re-felted, the spit valve works fine and looks like it has been recorked also. The mouthpiece is silver and made by H.N. White Co. As for the finish-poor to fair - it is gold colored and probably needs refinishing - PLEASE ASK QUESTIONS AS THIS INSTRUMENT IS AN ANTIQUE AND IS BEING SOLD AS IS . IF YOU NEED MORE PHOTOS LET ME KNOW. Questions : PHOTO #1
