Transverse flute in B-flat

This instrument was probably used by the Randwick Wesleyan Chapel Band. It is a side-blown flute made of dark wood, in three sections (head, barrel, and body joint), with nickel-silver ferrules and keywork. It has four saltspoon-cup keys mounted in blocks, with flat springs attached to keys. The head is lined with brass, and the tenon-socket joint with barrel is of nickel-silver. The stopper screw is of threaded wood with nickel-silver tip, but the cap is missing. The embouchure hole is circular. Nominal pitch: A.
