Answer
Hello Zoltan,
I had not previously heard of this brand of clarinet..They were made in Germany and highly regarded as very well in tune...The instruments are best up to serial num. 17900....After these were made, the founder/maker passed away and standards dropped...As to value, try      www.holzblaeser.com      [a music store in  Berlin] that knows of these instruments  and values.....Cheers    JACK       P.S.  One source I found valued a matched set of these clarinets at between 4000-8000 euros
