Flute – STEINER, Georg

This antique, boxwood flute was made by one of the members of the STEINER family – George, around 1830-1840. The Steiner family of woodwind instrument makers came from the town of Rottenburg am Neckar, in what is now Baden-Württemberg, Germany. (Not so far from us!)

The signature is present on all parts except for the head joint. The head joint is in fact not original, but made for this flute at a later moment.

It is crafted in boxwood and features a traditional square, brass key. The key’s touch-piece resembles a violin or viola da gamba. The key is block-mounted.

This antique flute has been equipped with a new horn cap. It is quite light.

 It plays at a=435 Hz.
