Identify this flute

Post by WillRockwell » Sat May 11, 2019 2:31 pm

I bought a silver flute today at an estate sale. On one end it says Odell, Boston. In smaller print is Made in Italy. There is a serial number, 22701. Does anyone know what this might be?

My research suggests this flute was imported from Italy by Thompson and Odell, which would date it before 1910, but it doesnt seem that old.
