Clarinets Stupid question about clarinets

Having recently fallen in love with the bass clarinet but being very naive about all things clarinet related can I ask a question to any clarineteers out there. How do I tell if a Clarinet is a German system model? I’m trying to get a case for my 1960s Kolhert and the question- is it German system or not- keeps on coming up. Any assistance on this one?

Visualy for me is only two keys on the RH pinky for the German system and four on the French.
Hope that helps.

Actually- based on the above, despite being German- it appears to be a non-German system (....French?). Excellent- that means it should fit in a BAM case barring any other non-standardness... Thanks for the information folks
