I have a Helicon to restore with a shield displaying: MARQUE DE LION D'OR.      Underneath comes: QUALITE SUPERIEURE,
                                                     L. DE LEEUW
                                                     FOURNISSEUR
                                                     DE L'ARMEE
                                                     ZWOLLS
Any ideas as to manufacturer etc. will be most welcome. I understand the French but can find no clues on the net or in Cliff Bevan's  tuba book.
Greetings all, Baroncorno

Louis de Leeuw was the other dealer in Zwolle. He was no manufacturer so we will need pictures to identify that helicon.
