Flute. Nominal pitch: C.

Technical description: Ivory; 5 sections; silver keys; 6 decorated silver ferrules; metal tuning-slide extending from head; no extension from tuning-slide section, which is long, straight and metal-lined; graduated screw-stopper; end of foot pared down on outside and grooved, originally to take a ferrule; oval embouchure-hole; small finger-holes; long tenons; overlapping low C/C♯ touches. Keymount type: knob. Keyhead type: flat round. Repair History: Head crack filled. Middle tenon reaches down to R1 hole, slightly overlapping, and up past G♯ key-hole, blocking it (lapping and screw thread can be seen through G♯ key-hole). Perhaps tenon was added later to replace one which broke, and forked G♯ fingering used; cross F key-hole plugged.
