Untouched metal Harry Pedler & Co Clarinet  serial 4420

HARRY PEDLER & Co. Clarinet
SINGLE PIECE CLARINET - it does not break in the middle!
This clarinet was made in the early 1920s.  As far as I know, Harry Pedler made very few, very high quality metal clarinets between 1919 and 1930.  After 1930 (his death), the quality of the instruments suffered, and they became known as generic student grade instruments.
BUT, this is an earlier piece -- very desirable and collectible.  At that time, Harry Pedler himself was in charge quality control.
Completely untouched, with visible wear to the silver plating - it will be up to the new owner to either keep is in an original condition (as part of a collection) or restore the instrument to like new condition.
Comes with original fitted case, and few extras - as can be seen in the scans.
Clearly marked on the horn ''MADE BY HARRY PEDLER & Co. Elkhart Ind''.
Good luck!
