It's for marching band, to increase speed of sound making it more projective whilst beeing aerodynamic improving ease of march.

fluted mouthpieces were not all that strange until the ’30.



Even selmer produced them both for saxophone and clarinet.



I am not sure which one this is but I once had a Lelandais “ Le Jaseur” which looked somewhat similar

this is one that is or was for sale on SOTW

I do own streamline mouthpieces myself but this one has much higher edges...
Looks like something that never should've been on the market.

A heat sink for sweaty marching-band players.

in all those years , especially the ’30, they tried almost anything and looks were ofter more important than function.
