 Help identifying a Clarinet

I have a Clarinet which looks to be wooden. It plays really well and has a nice tone.
It came with a Zinner Handcrafted Mouthpiece - Orsi. It also came with a BAM case.

The Clarinet itself has no markings on it or serial number so I am stuck with what make it could be. The only obvious thing I notice is that the Bell doesn't have a metal rim like many do.

Can you post more pictures? Really can't tell anything from the picture you provided.

Definitely need more photos of the keywork.

I've never seen that kind of crows foor nor angled ring key foot/linkage piece on any of the usual suspects, so maybe it could be an Orsi (I hardly ever see any Orsi clarinets in the UK, only their oboes).

I can't figure out how to add more photo's to here as the add attachment isn't working - i'll start another post with more pictures on if you don't mind taking a look.x

Winter -

I think there is a file size limit for attachments...perhaps the files you're trying to post are too large? (Not sure - just a thought.)


[edit] Oops! Just saw that you have it figured out in a different post.

Thanks! I have emailed the photo's to Orsi to see if they can help.

The previous owner said she's had it at least 12 years and that it cost around £1000 new.
