This sax ended up at my tech's shop when the owner passed away. He was a music teacher, and had a number of different instruments. This was the only sax he had.

This—and the other tenor in this gallery that was only a few digits away in serial numbers—that Ron Lohr rescued out of a garbage can in 2010, are the only Modele D’Artistes saxophones that I have come across in years of searching for Pierrets.

The horn is playable, but is leaking severely. It does need a complete rebuild. If I do end up keeping it, I will eventually have it done.

This interesting horn is yet another C. Jeuffroy saxophone in Canada. With so many turning up in this country, I do now believe that someone was importing them into the Canada in the late 1920s or early 1930s, and distributing them as far west as Vancouver.
