Description
BEAUTIFUL Boehm system oboe by Buffet-Crampon & Cie, a Paris, imported by C. Fischer, New York. This great oboe is from around 1890 and plays beautifully at A440. Great for doubling, since the fingering is practically IDENTICAL to the Boehm system flute. Or a magnificent instrument for your COLLECTION. You just don't find many of these around any more. This one has an old very stable glued crack at the post for the first octave key (see pic), otherwise it is in perfect condition, with NO LEAKS at all. One piece body of grenadilla, with German silver keys. DON'T miss out on this rare oboe. I accept cashier's check, money order or personal check (must clear before shipping).

Details for the seller and high bidder(s):
The seller should contact the winning bidder(s) with information on the total cost, including shipping, and where to send payment. The winning bidder(s) must pay the seller directly for the item(s), and it is the seller's responsibility to fulfill the order when payment terms are met. The binding contract of the auction is between the winning bidder and the seller.

If the seller is unable to establish contact with the high bidder within 3 business days of the end of the auction, he/she may lose the place as winning bidder, and be at risk for receiving negative feedback and/or a Non-Paying Bidder warning, both of which can ultimately lead to suspension from eBay.
