Anon.

Philadelphia??
No image at this timeThis is an eight keyed flute with C foot. The keys are pillar mounted. The headjoint with partial slide. The G# key is at 90º in the French mode, yet the instrument has some Germanic influence. The tone holes are carefully undercut, and the flute plays well in tune with a good tone.Removed due to ivory restrictions.

Richard Potter

London
This is the famous Potter 6 keyed flute with foot to C and a fully lined headjoint with tuning slide. The keys are all Potter's patent pewter plugs. Happily the keys all seat, and the flute has a strong low C and C#. Curiously, the blow hole has been undercut as though the player would hold the flute angled towards the audience, blowing towards the upper right corner of the embouchure. This undercutting appears original. This model flute became so popular and famous it really transformed flute playing, ushering in the use of the keyed flute as a chromatic instrument.Sold.
