The fact that it is a C clarinet is not helpful in dating the
instrument with the strange but unstated name. I have a Buffet
C dating from 1895 (as dated by Bufft in Paris to whom I took it
for the precise purpose of dating). They and every other clarinet
maker continue to make C clarinet to this day and one can almost
buy them off the shelf at a price approximately 15% higher than
a standard B-flat or A clarinet.
