Pictures please!

Buffet made three types F alto clarinets in the early 20th century:

Small bore to low E: basically shaped like a big clarient with a straight bell and neck. Very rare and hard to find today. I only know of one that exists but I've never seen it it person.

Small bore to low Eb: Shaped like an alto clarient. This sounds like what you have. Essentially the same as the basset horn but missing the extra notes

"Radio model" alto in F, large bore: Unlike the two previous instruments this was a true alto clarinet and used an alto clarinet mouthpiece. If they are made after around 1955 they will be marked "RADIO MODEL" although the earlier ones are acoustically identical with only minor keywork differences.
