Barbier Ebony Clarinet
Barbier ebony clarinet (Bb?)
I purchased this last year at a flea market and this is as found. Ebony appears to be in good condition with no visible cracks. There may be a small repair near the thumbrest but I am not certain (see closeup photo below). If it is a repair they did a good job. Might just be crud. Each piece looks right with the Barbier PARIS logotype stamped on every one. Solid looking instrument. Measures 23-5/8" without mouthpiece.
Nickel silver needs cleaning with light tarnishing present. Needs to be re-corked and padded. Looks complete minus the reed clamp. No case or accessories included.
Mouthpiece is plastic (Bakelite?) BHB "Super True-Lay" with "EXCELSIOR" marked at top and stamped "SC" on reverse (see photo below).
Looks like this would be a nice clarinet restored.
