I'm new here so please bear with me. I've searched the internet and found a few pages that seem to answer what model I have but I'm still unsure. Apparently Noblets are a bit difficult to figure out.

Here is a quick description of the clarinet.

The emblem seems to be the later type complex design with more intricate lyre, (d. noblet paris) inside the dashed oval, and the DN monogram underneath and the serial number is in the 2400s.

Please see the pictures for more details.

I believe from what I've read, that this is a Noblet 40 in the 1940-1962 range.

Can anyone shed some light on this and provide more details?

Any help is appreciated.

Early 1940s model 40 makes sense with information/pictures given.

Corresponds with the information gathered here anyway:

Thanks for confirming what I was thinking. I think that only the Noblet 40 had that logo. Hopefully I'm right on that one.

It's been hard to find concrete details.

If anyone else has more info, please contribute.

I'm going to go out on a limb here and say it's definitely PRE-1958, simply because I played a 1958-vintage Noblet that's visually identical to this one, except that mine has straight-backed (rather than wavy) side trill keys, and my case was a little snazzier (in a '60s mode--this one definitely looks from a previous era by comparison). The serial number is 8767D, if I remember correctly. Hope that's useful.

That seems to confirm what I’ve been seeing. I’m leaning towards the 40s with the 3 post design etc. But what do I know lol.
