Clarinet #4 and #5 (from left to right) on this photo aren't A.Robert models.

Clarinet #4 is a "Selmer Marchi" based on Selmer 10S Full Boehm.This mechanism acts like a second register key allowing to play in a new register one 6th higher, i.e. when you finger d2 and press the second register key on the rear then this produces b2. Joseph Marchi from Nizza/France, who invented this system thought that the higher notes could thus be produced more seamlessly.

This "Marchi" clarinet was not long on the market. I bought it (new) around 1977. You may find additional photos of this (complicated) system on

Look at the photo of the rear side. I guess that less than 10 clarinets of that type still exist in a playable mode.
