Literature

This recorder may have been one of a pair which would explain the existence of the second foot joint which is overall fractionally larger in all dimensions except for bore diameter.
This instrument is not recorded by Phillip Young in 4900 Historical Woodwind Instruments and is thus the only known example of a soprano recorder by the Oberlenders
