19th Century Flute 

This is a late 19th century simple system flute: the body is made from blackwood and the head is shaped to make a lip plate. The head has a stable repair and it is sleeved with metal so it blows well. The wood has no cracks, splits or repairs that I can find.  A key near the foot has a bit missing (close-up picture is shown) All other keys correct and in working order (pads reasonable)  Overall length 28 inches, sounding length 25 inches.
