Please excuse my lack of knowledge of the Oboe,I have asked for a friend whom believed it to be a conservatoire!
So this is not,and is just a Thumbplate model as you suggest? I have just added pictures of the serial numbers and the length which may help further to date it,I must admit is Has to be Very old-Antique,it has the original reeds,screwdriver in their cases and turned hardwood caps throughout.
Many Many thanks to all for your assistance.
