This light brown clarinet consists in a three piece tube, a bell and a barrel. The clarinet has five square brass keys. This example is made of boxwood with ivory rings, while the mouthpiece is made of ebony and it has a boxwood mouthpiece cover. This clarinet is marked with a unicorn stamp and "C. Gerock 76 Bishopsgate St, London". Christopher Gerock was an instrument maker active in London between 1804 and 1837, therefore presumably this clarinet was made between those dates. This clarinet was the first instrument used in Irthington Church, Cumbria.
