Monzani, London 9-key Ivory

Instrument: Monzani #2099 - made in 1822. Fine 9-key C flute, ivory with silver rings and keys, in original case.

Maker: Monazni & Co, 28 Regent Stt, Piccadilly, London

Pitch: A=435 - A=440

Sounding Length: 595mm

Total Length:

Embouchure size: small

Restorer: Jon Cornia

Notes:  This flute came to me as a pair in an original case (probably from Monzani) paired with an crystal 8-key flute by Laurent. It is compelling to imagine that Monzani may have made the ivory flute to pair with the Laurent and the flutes will work when played together.
