Margaret Squires asked:
> Can anyone help identify an old cornet?
and Elazar commented [in part]:
...........music publishing company that used to buy horns with their  
name on them, and that this was a popular thing to do around the turn  
of the
last century.

Dear Margaret.
All of this rings a very faint bell.
Years ago, I seem to recall, a similar question was asked and one of  
the replies drew attention to a website which had a complete  
identification listing for nearly all the generic horns imported into  
the US from Europe back at the turn of the last century.
Dave Richoux, Bob Ringwald, Steve Barbone or Don Ingle may recall this.
It will probably be in the DJML Archive
But how to find it without knowing the original subject line, or how  
to search our archive?
I did a quick 'google' with no success.
Very kind regards,
