This magnificent flute is very up-to-date for it's time. It has a side G#, a foot to B, and a trill to B. Godfroy used the trill key rod for his thumb key trill, which requires the gap in the strap visible under the touch.On trial.

Serial #5364.
Paris France
This is a very beautiful 8 keyed flute, with three corps de rechangé. The foot is to C. The whole instrument is fitted into a suede lined two layer wooden case. This elegant instrument is the height of flutemaking for it's time. The use of extra midjoints rather than a tuning slide gives the flute the full range of pitch used in France at the time, from A=430 to A=448.Sorry, sold.
