WE AN RARE ANITQUE 1900 FRENCH SILVERPLATE COUESNON CLARINET IN VERY GOOD CONDITION FOR SUCH A CLARINET. THE MONTH PIECE IS PLASTIC AND SAYS " LA CHAPELLE "; T IS NO SERIAL NUMBER AT ALL ; ON THE HORN OR BELL IS AS FOLLOWS, T IS A RIBBON AND ON THAT RIBBON IT SAYS EXPOSITION UNIVERSELLE 1900 DE PARIS ; THEN UNDER THAT IS HORS CONCOURS ; THEN UNDER THAT IS MEMBRE DU JURY ; THEN UNDER THAT IS CONESNON & C IE AND THE IE IS UNDERLINED; THEN FOURNISSEURS DE L'ARMEE ; THEN 94 RUE D' ANGOULEME ; THEN PARIS ; THEN 29 IS IN A TULIP SHAPE FLOWER; THEN LAST FRANCO AMERICAN ......IN THE ORGINAL LEATHER CASE, BUT IT DOES NOT HAVE THE HANDLES. COUPLE OF TINY BUMP'S ON THE BELL, SEE PHOTO'S 1 & 2 , BUT THAT'S NOTHING.

WE DID MAGNET TEST ( DOES NOT STICK TO THE METAL), AND IT SUGGEST THAT IT IS SILVER OVER NICKEL . T IS NO PITS , T ARE LEATHER PADS AND CORKS ON ALL. OH! AND SMALL DIAMETER, NOT LIKE OUR CLARINETS OF TODAY. THIS IS REALLY COOL, IF IT DOES NOT SELL, I'M GOING TO PLAY IT. MY DAUGHTER SAW IT LAST NIGHT, AND THE FIRST THING SHE SAIDS IS THAT I DIDN'T KNOW THEY MADE METAL CLARINETS, COOL...... : )

ALL THE PARTS MOVE AND THE PADS THEY ARE ALL T YOU'LL MAY NEED TO CLEAN & RE-CORK AND OR PADS REPLACE, THAT'S USUALLY NORMAL FOR YOUR OLDER INSTRUMENTS. IT'S REALLY BEAUITFUL INSTRUMENT. IT HAS BEEN PLAYED RECENTLY, THE REED IS NEW. T ARE BUMPS ON THE FLAIR OF THE HORN, SEE PHOTO'S 1 &2. KEYS ALL WORK BUT ONE DOES STICKS OR HANG UP UNDER ANOTHER...THE LONGER KEYS. THE FINGER PAD MIGHT NEED SOME FILING TO MOVE EASIER.

PLEASE NOTE THAT I AM NOT EXPERT AND IS BEING SOLD AS IS. CLARINET PEOPLE KEEP ME INFORMED....

PLEASE DO NOT BID, IF YOU PLAN NOT TO PAY FOR MY INSTRUMENTS .

I ALSO HAVE A 1889 COUESNON Bb LP GRENADILLA WOOD CLARINET, WITH THE SAME WRITING ON THE HORN AS ALMOST ALL THE SAME AS THE ABOVE AND THE MOUTH PIECE IS DIFFERENT. THE LP is for LOW PITCH WHICH IS FOR A=440, I'LL PUT THIS UP LATER ON EBAY,

COUESNON (pronounced QUE-NON) COMPANY IS A TOTALY DIFFERENT COMPANY FROM SELMER. BOTH COMPANIES ARE LOCATED IN PARIS.YOU SEE ALOT MORE SELMER'S VERSES COUESNON, I BELIEVE THAT THEY ARE ALOT RARER, SINCE SELMER EXPANDED IN THE USA.

THIS IS WHAT I FOUND ON THE WEB.Clarinet's has been around since 1700's & in 1830 -1840's a 12-13 key Boehm clarinet
