Treble recorder

Rosewood, in three joints, with pencil cedar plug. Seven simple fingerholes and one thumb hole. Pitch of the instrument: E -30 cents. In own rectangular wooden box. Arnold Dolmetsch usually stamped his wind instruments "Dolmetsch". The fact that this example is unmarked suggests that it was a prototype from his workshop.
