I've never seen this model before; in fact, I can't remember ever seeing a Cabart made of ebonite.

It will be either a plateau-fingered Albert, or else a saxophone-fingered clarinet.

A saxophone-fingered clarinet has an upper register "F" which is fingered like a Boehm-system clarinet's "F" [with just the right hand's index finger, rather than flaming hot mess which is the oboe's "F" or the Albert-system clarinet's upper register "F"], and a saxophone-fingered clarinet also has an upper register "High-C" which is fingered like a saxophone's "High-C" [with the left hand's middle finger].

Back in the day, Kohlert Graslitz made saxophone-fingered plateau clarinets, and I'm guessing that this Cabart is probably also saxophone-fingered, because that would make the clarinet "Easy to Play" for saxophone players who needed to double on the clarinet.

Neat! That's an Albert system with plateau keys. You don't see those around very much at all.

A real shame about the lower keys though. Someone tore those off with great force!

Sax fingered, I'd say, not Albert.  Look at the RH tone hole arrangement.   Cabart made sax fingered oboes too.
