 Is it possible to identify this clarinet?

My parents got me this clarinet in (roughly) 2004 and were told at the time that it was new, never used. Fast forward to now, I take it in to be repaired, but we couldn't identify the maker.

It might be and Artley? There is a a VERY faded logo on the upper barrel and the bell but neither are visible in the photos. I can only see it in the right light. They seemed to have been pressed into the wood. No other markings other than a number on the lower barrel. I don't know if it's a serial or model number.

At my local repair shop, they told me it is wood, and is probably 40-50 years old and looks like a french design.

It seems like it could just be a stencil clarinet, but I was hoping to find out some more info on it.

That looks very much like a wooden Artley/Armstrong clarinet.

Thanks Chris! The logo was just so faded that that I wasn't sure I could trust it!
