French Horn/Chinese horn with detachable Bell?

Question
I purchased a used, unbranded horn with the hopes of supplementing our school's availability to new students. I assumed it was Chinese. However, I can't find any examples of Chinese horns with detachable bells like mine. Who made this?

Answer
Hi, if you could send a couple of pictures of the horn and case I could offer an opinion... without seeing it it's a bit tricky.

There are quite a lot of detachable bell Chinese horns around on this side of the Atlantic, both new and old.

Anyway, send photos and I'll tell you what I think.
