Description: Octavin
Pitch: Bb or C – the Octavin was available in both, but the seller didn't specify which this was.
Manufacturer: Oscar Adler?
Serial #: n/a
Source: welchmusic on

Although the seller didn't state a manufacturer, since Adler was one of the copyright holders (D.R.G.M. Nr. 22165), and the instrument didn't catch on much, it's a good chance this was an Adler-made instrument.

This is how the seller described this instrument:

"It does not have a serial number. It is a single reed instrument, with a conical bore. Its invention is attributed to Jullius Jehring. (1824 -1906) a bassoon maker in Markneukirchen, Germany. Oskar Adler, a maker in Markneukirchen and Hermann Jordan of the same town were granted the German patents (on 27 September and 11 of October 1893). [Actually it was a copyright, not a patent.] The instrument, 40 cm high, is made of rosewood( palisander), resembling the butt of a bassoon. The wider bore is fitted with a small metal bell, turned outwards at a right angle. To the narrower bore an ebonite joint is added, terminating in a clarinet type beak mouthpiece. 14 keys and three rings are fingered, much as a simple system oboe. I have had this instrument almost fifty years."
