Question
I have acquired an J.Marigaux  serial# 5895. It is in wonderful condition....except for the case.  I would like to find out a little more about the oboe..ex. Age and proximate value.

Answer
Dear Tracy

Please can you send me a picture or two of your Marigaux and attach them to an email.
I can ID it better when I see it.

I have an idea of its age but valuation is difficult without sight of it.

Send email and pictures to:

I will pleased to follow this up for you.

Thank you very much
