Best bet is to take it to a shop with a clarinet expert. Howarths of London is a good bet if you're ever in London.

Otherwise there are loads of different permutations. Is it wood or plastic? Are the keys nickel or silver plated? Is there a metal ring around the bell? Is there a metal ring around the end of the tenon joints? There are also a couple of types, and you can get them in A, Bb and C. The Bb is the most common. Post pictures and I might be able to give you more of a clue. Also, take off the mouthpiece and measure its length.

Values can vary from just a few quid for a cheapo plastic one to thousands for a top flight African Blackwood model with silver keys from a good maker. The likely bad news for you is that the major makers usually put a clear maker's mark on the bell.
