When it rains it pours, seems to be a good day for Artley / Armstrong flutes.
Here I am giving part of the promotional info given by the seller, edited to include
only what is pertinent to the model, as opposed to this particular individual example:
"Artley Semi pro Solid Sterling Silver French - model 108-0, ser# 37-25734 ( 1987 ).
Artley is a well respected US woodwind manufacturer and the 108-0 is the base of
their top of the line ( models 109,111 have gold appointments ). It is a French open
hole model that features Sterling Silver Headjoint, body, and foot ( each piece is
. )This is a stunning flute, the equal to a Geminhardt 3sb/KGG Special
or Yamaha 400 series."
Interestingly the seller did not include a close-up photo of the Artley logo on the
flute barrel but it looks to me (from another photo that I am not posting here) to
be like the newer stylised type as the one in the above posting. It also comes in
a case and case bag with no logo on it.
The keywork looks to me to be in the traditional Artley style.
This flute would be of interest to someone who collected Artley flutes in that
this was probably made in limited numbers and it seems to be a true Artley.
