- - Key Holes System: 0/6 holes plus membrane hole.
- - Physical Description: DCM ledger: "Cut in two at knot, to get in trunk."
- - Mark Maximum: No mark.
- - At each end of the closely spaced septa, there is turned or hand-filed an approximately 5 mm. wide channel which is then decorated with a winding of silver or metal wire. The upper end likely had either an added length of integral bamboo material or another material carved to have a continuous bevel to function as the edge.
- - Condition: The decorative wire windings are missing from the upper 3 septum areas described above although some or all of that wire material was placed inside the bore of the instrument. Originally in one piece, this instrument was cut in two at the 3rd septum from the top to fit into a trunk.
- - Provenance: André Rossignol, Paris, 28 July 1926.
- Bamboo, brass ferrules, silver or other unidentified metal wire.; 78.2 cm.
