Guy Humphrey was a trade name employed for US-imported clarinets (a "stencil" clarinet). It may have been made by any number of manufacturers in France.

From what I can make out on the bell ,Guy Humphrey Paris is inside an oval above that are two letters (part of words?} "L" and a "B" above that appears to be a banner with letters inside it. That is all I have to work with. I am curious as to the age of this instrument, or anything else.
