Beautiful Louis Lot Solid Silver Flute with open-hole and C-foot (#9647)
Beautiful Louis Lot solid silver flute from the last era of the company (1950’s) . The Louis Lot company was started in the latter part of the 19th century. His work was highly regarded and has been copied by other main flute makers such as Haynes and Altus over the years. The Louis Lot company continued after Louis Lot’s death and changed hands a number of times before the last era with Strasser-Marigaux-Lemaire (SML). Known for producing high quality wind instruments and there are a number of flutes produced under the Louis Lot name. As the serial numbers were changed when SML purchased the Louis Lot company, they run in line with SML serial numbers and not the old LL records.
I am selling this on behalf of a customer and the price is very competitive for a quick sale.
This particular flute is a fine example and has been serviced and adjusted The condition is very good and there are some scratches to the body which could polish out. This example plays very nicely and to 442hz pitch without having to have been re-tuned, which was an advantage of the later models.
