Many years ago when I played oboe seriously as a kind/teen, I was given what was even 20 years ago a gorgeous vintage Noblet oboe. It hasn't been played in at least 40 years, but I bought a reed just to see if it even could produce a tone, and sure enough I was able to produce a few. I cannot find much out about this instrument. It is made of grenadilla wood (or a very very dark rosewood), and appears to be the professional style instrument with additional keys. Rough estimate to fully restore have been about $600. I will try and post up a few pictures this week, but from my online searching, I've only found images that match the case (red lining), but not much about the instrument at all. It really is a lovely looking instrument. Other than the pads and springs needing obvious replacement, the keywork is actually in decent shape. I haven't played an oboe in many years, but I would like to play again, especially if it makes sense to restore this instrument into playing condition.
