Hi all!

I am writing this post on behalf of one of my local tech, who has acquired an old/antique baritone saxophone made by Gautrot, one of the contemporaries of Adolf Sax.
He is looking for an identification or more information about the instrument if someone happens to know these. He is also considering selling it, so it will be great if you can give an idea of how much is it worth.

The inscription on the bell says Marquet, breveté s.g.d.g. à Paris
It is nickel plated, with low B and up to D sharp. It appears to be made in the second half of the 19th century.

It has been restored and overhauled with pads without resos to a perfect playable condition. He said he tuned it to 442hz and it held well.
I am attaching some photos (not the greatest quality) and a clip with a colleague of his playtesting the instrument.

Any help will be much appreciated!
