One final question. Can anyone say where this instrument might have sat in the quality league? Particularly with regards to the reeds I guess.


That's hard to say with the original ends missing, but a photo of the reed-pans (showing the chamois gasket) might give me a clue...

Here you are Stephen.


Thanks Clive, that confirms that the instrument started out as one of middling quality, not a professional instrument.



I take it that the darkening of mush of the chamois means that it has been leaking?


Yes, quite likely as a result of corner support blocks coming unglued.
