Here is an interesting one.  Rosewood.  1880s?  Initially ai thought it had to be French, but the socket rings and (broken) thumbrest sold me on a German manufacturer.  Pretty.  Reasonably well preserved.  Any thoughts?

Barrel and key rings look vaguely like an early Couesnon but don't take that to the bank... it could be anything.

Gorgeous wood. Almost looks like the propeller Conns.

Here is another, pretty extraordinary find;  a LP refer for under 150 bucks that can be put back into playing condition.  I believe the build date to be early 1920s, due to relatively advanced Albert keywork and LP:  Fairly prided, but who made it?

Very very interesting. I've yet to see any stamp that writes out the "flat" instead of just using the "b."
