Has Anyone Seen A "Tourraine Et Cie" Trumpet?

Hi, I was wondering if anyone could give me some information on this trumpet I found? It's a Tourraine Et Cie at least that's what is written on it. Definitely looks old and I believe it was made in Czechoslovakia as it's marked that on it. I took some pictures so you can see it in the links below. Any information would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

We have seen examples of trumpet and baritone.  But, we have no information on the company.

Thank you. Darn too bad there isn't more out there about them. I'm sure that is the case for a lot of companies.

The little anchor stamp on the middle valve (for some reason upside down on your trumpet) is for Bohland & Fuchs as the manufacturer. The "4" below the valve numbers on the other side is probably their pattern number as they did this on many of their cornets. They were located in Graslitz (modern Kraslice), which was once part of Austria. There were many companies and large music stores in the US buying from B&F as they were the cheap import of the day. The "Tourraine" name is just a ruse to make it seem like a more valuable instrument made in France. Even catalog stores like Sears and Montgomery Ward would market instruments like this.
