11. A Taragato, possibly Romanian, in Rosewood with no makers stamp. [ A Taragato is a wooden hybrid instrument of conical bore with Simple System clarinet fingering].

However the instrument has suffered much at the hands of former owners! There is a sealing wax repair to the interior bore, and it appears to have had a loose fitting bell at some point, because it has obviously fallen to the floor and has numerous cracks and marks of damage to the rim.
