Thanks to Gary Kern for sharing this link containing the 1912 Couesnon catalog: http://www.luthiers-mirecourt.com/couesnon_1912_1.htm
Because I fear that linked sites could disappear, I am directly putting the images on this page, and ask for help translating the French.
One needs a mustache to play a Couesnon instrument authentically!

Starting in the 1920s Couesnon started the "Conservatoires" branding to try and get college level music students ... which did not work.
