In this video Hugh Downs asks Jerry Lewis about the horn he's horsing around with - Jerry refers to it as a cornet verndt (sp?) Vernd? Vernde?

I've never heard the term before, I don't get a hit online on any variation of the spelling that I've tried.

Anyone ever heard of it before?

It may have been a pocket trumpet/cornet from a long-defunct maker of cheap instruments. Jerry Lewis was known to be evasive and sarcastic when he wasn't performing his kid-clown routine.

Well cornet vert will give you a green cornet, or greenhorn (he had a habit for jokes that went over everyone's head)
