Anyone with information on Gronitz tubas?

I recently acquired a nice old(er) Gronitz four RV BBb tuba and can't find much information on these horns. If anyone knows about these tubas I would be very appreciative.

It is a 4/4 BBb with graduated bore through the valves:
1st: 18.5mm
2nd: 18.9mm
3rd: 19.5mm
4th: 19.5mm

It is similar to the current BZ 126 but slightly smaller bore, different 3rd valve circuit wrap, has no kranz and brass rather than NS slide legs. Raw brass, all hand made.

A fine instrument with clear voice and crisp slotting.
