To be honest with these Italian oboes, there's not much info other than they were made in the thousands for anyone that wanted them. I've seen them stencilled with numerous names and in basic thumbplate system to intermediate conservatoire system.

Orsi don't list oboes on their site and the most recent ones I worked on were poorly made with the key barrels all reamed oversize and therefore loose on the rod screws.

The various names they go by are Buisson, Selmer Sterling/Console, Louis LM5, Howarth B/C, Grassi, Orsi, La Margue, Evette, ...

The Artia oboes made by Amati are Czechoslovakian copies of these and the top joint bore is oversize, so they're unstable from low E downwards. The Prestini/Orsi ones should be fine as the bores are fairly narrow.

The only info I can find on Orsi oboes is this:
