Trying to identify this trumpet

Hello,

I have a old horn that I was trying to identify. It has either ZAZ or ZVZ stenciled on it. I couldn't get a clear picture of that but will link a few pictures of the overall horn.





THANKS

There was a Czech Republic company, Zazvonil.  May not be related, but that was the first thing that occurred to me.

That would seem to make sense.. I cannot find out a lot about the company to find anything to compare it to.

The valve block looks like something I've seen from Belgium or Netherlands [older Schenkelaars, Warner, Persy] - there was one on Quality-Brass, but they're down for maintenance and I can't find the info...
It might have been this link, or "Percy/Persy no. 7" [the name might have been misspelled...I can't remember":  http://www.quality-brass.com/store/index.php?route=product/product&product_id=25...

It could be a Schenkelaars. I have a Schenkelaars Cornet with the same valve caps (bottom and top). I also have a picture of a Schenkelaars cornet with water keys like the ones on this trumpet.

Show us one of the valves.  Schenkelaars used a distinctive valve spring configuration.
