Restored Vintage Buffet Clarinet

We just restored to perfect playing condition the oldest Buffet clarinet we've ever seen! It has a low 3 digit serial number with no letters. We estimate it to be made in the first year of production, approximately 1885 or maybe before. This old system
resembles the Albert system, but is a much earlier system much like the boxwood clarinets of the early to mid 1800's. It includes the original wood mouthpiece cover. The clarinet takes a small shank wooden mouthpiece.
