Hello,My name is ***** ***** I'm happy to help.Does your flute have a manufacturer's name? Does it have a model number or serial number? What is there to indicate it is a 19th century instrument?Of what material is it made?
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
Nothing to trace on the flute. The brass pieces appear old. Joint pieces appear to be wrapped in silk for tight fit. Made of cherry or some tight grained hardwood.
Not much to go on.
