 Godfroy and Jeuffroy clarinets

Hi from Ken. 25 years ago I acquired an orchestral pair of wood clarinets at an antique mall in So. California. The A clarinet is a Godfroy Aine with A LP on the upper and lower sections. The B flat is a C. Jeuffroy with no markings. Both clarinets are in mint condition including pads and corks. The case is a French style (black) much like the one my 1953 Buffet came in. Both have Southern California Music Co. on the bell. 2 unlabeled mouthpieces. When I bought the set I assumed they were built around 1950 . From discussions on these pages it appears that the markings LP on clarinets did not extend much beyond 1930. I would like to know if Godfroy continued to include LP on clarinets after 1930. I have since acquired two more clarinets:1. a Godfroy B flat with a B LP on the lower section. It came with a Selmer mouthpiece. It has old pads and corks but is still air tight. The case is black plastic; 2. a C Jeuffroy with LP B on the bell, a Penzel-Mueller barrel, a Perfectone mouth piece and older pads and cork. The case is brown vinyl with stitched red leather strips on the ends. It has a wrap around register key, and dull keywork. Both these latter clarinets have Southern California Music Co. stamped on the bell below the logo. I would like to find out approximately when the orchestral pair and the latter two clarinets were made. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
