Looks exactly like every other Chinese "clarinet" that appears on the market. They make them to order and put whatever name the customer wants on them.

Yes, clarinet in quotes as Tony puts it is about right. I have seen a number of these instruments with a variety of names in recent years. Poorly made, lousy uneven response, bad intonation, shoddy keywork.

If you want to make a lamp out of it, it looks just like a clarinet. If you want to play an instrument, look elsewhere.
