Looks like a suon'a, but it has some differences. This type of instrument is also used in other asian countries, and my guess that this one is eurasian, but from exactly where I don't know. It appears that the owner found a single-reed mouthpiece for oboe and fitted it. The mouthpiece is worth a lot more than the instrument.It looks a lot like a Chinese instrument called a "Suona." The difference, obviously, is that the pictures of all the Suonas I've seen have a double-reed mouthpiece.
It's also possible it's one of the "reed instruments - pipe"-class things that were mainly patented in the 1920s by a variety of US manufactures, most notably Conn and Buescher. I remember seeing an awful lot of patent drawings that are similar to what's in the ad.
