That's essentially the same keywork system as a basic thumbplate system oboe, minus the articulated G# mechanism (for an easy F#-G# slur or trill) which you'll find on later oboes which will have either a ring key or a covered fingerplate for RH finger 1.

Thumbplate systems do indeed linger on in the UK compared to the rest of the world and are also found in former British colonies to some degree, although mostly superseded by conservatoire system.

The only company still regularly making thumbplate system oboes in the UK is Howarth and they're only the Junior, S10 and S20 oboes - the Howarth B model oboes were basic entry level wooden thumbplate system oboes made in Italy for Howarth and the same Italian makers (Prestini and Orsi) made them for various other companies as well. The keywork on these Italian thumbplate system oboes is largely based on your Triebert oboe - most obviously in the manner the 8ve keys and C-D trill key are mounted.

All the other Howarth instruments from the S30 upwards made with thumbplates are dual system which are conservatoire system with an added thumbplate to offer the option of using both thumbplate fingerings for Bb and C as well as the conservatoire fingerings.
