A silver cornet
At Market Lavington Museum, we are able to preserve the memory of the proud history of the Market Lavington Prize Silver Band. We have many photographs, bandsmen’s caps and jackets, account books, tuning information and the like.
We also have a few instruments. See Bang it on the big bass drum and The E flat horn as well as this silver cornet.
It is marked ‘Superior Class’ and came from Hawkes and Son of Leicester Square in London.
