Antique pocket trumpet

I'm hoping someone could tell me the potential value of an antique brass pocket trumpet with rotary valves from Marie Wolf in very good condition. Any help or opinions is appreciated. Thanks in advance.

We can tell you that the company was in Frauenfeld Switzerland from 1868-1935.

The issue of value is an almost impossible thing. Often it is not based on quality, but rather reputation/popularity of the brand, condition of the instrument, appearance of the instrument, novelty of the design, rarity and the market.  Market in the sense of who would want this instrument.

That is a lot to speculate on .

I give an example here. There is a nice Wolf trumpet for sale on the Belgian Ebay at the moment(link) (https://www.benl.ebay.be/itm/Tres-belle-ancienne-trompette-a-palettes-Wolf/20278...)
I know it would at least bring double the money on the German Ebay. They like Wolf instruments there
