I think a few 'photos would be very helpful. Usually, early Pierrets either had no decorative engraving, just their trade mark, address and model number or, on their later models, fairly standardised designs. So, probably not a Pierret. If this was a notorious asian "Parrot" why would jazzyblackbari's teacher want to buy it and why would the school turn down $1500.........many times it's cost new ? We await the pix.Well anyway... I will try to take a picture of this saxophone later ...
