my wife is learning the Oboe and we have bought one recently at an estate sale to replace her very basic Bundy student model. it is a Cabart Paris oboe but seems to be unique. it has no serial number or model number on it and we are wondering if there is anyone who might know some more about it. The Bell is simply labeled "Cabart Paris" and does not have the usual Cabart logo and markings. It is all wood and in good shape. ( we are currently having it serviced) We have pictures of the instrument to send and would appreciate any help anyone has.

That's Italian - either a Prestini or Orsi. Probably more likely a Prestini as it's fairly old.

They were stencilled with a whole myriad of names (like Malerne clarinets) and even Howarth imported them as their beginner (B) and student (C) models.
