Scope and content

Item is a flute, likely made by Boosey in London, with German-silver bands and keywork mounted on pillars. Pratten, a celebrated English flutist, developed this system in 1852, and in 1856 Boosey started to make Pratten flutes. This flute has a cylindrical bore with large holes all covered, and is fingered like the eight-keyed flute.
