These boxwood joints and keys were originally part of a four joints flute. The top joint is missing. The flute was made by William Henry Potter, an instrument maker based in London in the late 18th century and early 19th century. The flute consists in three joints with four square silver keys. The joints are connected by brass rings. The six fingerholes are placed between the two centre joints.
