For Sale: Henry Wylde 8-key D flute, c. 1835. Silver keys, keyways, crown, end cap.
I am selling a lovely Wylde 8-key “D” flute. The flute has elegant key-work and a sterling-silver crown and end cap. It has silver-lined keyways, which is an unusual and very desirable feature. Such detail is only found on the very top-tier of simple-system keyed flutes from this period. In the present case it is an elegant preventive solution to the potential for cracked or chipped key blocks.
It is offered at $2,650. I will ship anywhere in the US at my expense. I will ship overseas at buyer’s expense. The flute is offered with a money-back guarantee, less the cost of shipping and any bank fees.
