Here is a nice old French Wood Clarinet made by A Fontaine to add to your collection or play again. Would make a great gift for a special occasion, or keep it for yourself!
The clarinet is made of what appears to be grenadilla wood. All the springs and pieces seem to be in place, we are certain it would require servicing to be played again. Would definitely need new pads. Has the serial number of "3926" on one piece. The piece dates to the early 1900s. There is no mouthpiece or clamp with this clarinet.
There is a case with this clarinet. Still has a nice finish on it. The latches are working. Also a signed dedicated picture to someone from a "Tom" in the case
The clarinet body is 23" long without a mouthpiece. Cork ends at joints are worn and will need replacing. Do not see any splits in the wood of the various clarinet pieces. There is no mouthpiece with this clarinet. The cover for a mouthpiece is present.
We have just wiped the clarinet down. Let us know if you have any questions or need additional pictures.
The pictures provided both complement and supplement the listing description, so please look at them very closely as well. With old items, there is no way one can capture all the little imperfections in words, so the two media are meant to be the full description.
