A 19th Century English Flageolet in very good playing condition. It appears to be made from African blackwood, all of which is in good order with no cracks, the six keys are all working and the old pads still have life left in them.
It it is the key of D and has a well-fitting brass tuning slide which gives you just short of a semi-tone’s difference in pitch. It probably once had a ivory beak protruding from the top of the barrel, but is perfectly playable without it.
Overall lenght 34cm
