2109 - Conical 8-keyed flute by Griesling & Schlott

In boxwood and horn, with brass keys, and dating from around 1815 is this unrestored flute from the Berlin partnership of Johan Conrad Griessling and B.M. Schlott, both former employees of F.G.A. Kirst in Potsdam. It has survived with upper mid joint number 2 (149.8mm between tenons). In common with many other Griesling & Schlott flutes it does not have a mount at the end of the foot joint. Restoring the instrument to playing condition should not require much work, and many such flutes survive from which to model the missing crown mechanism.
