Pierre NAUST workshop

The original instrument from which I realize this copy is part of the beautiful collection of Peter Spohr in Frankfurt. This four parts baroque flute is made of stained boxwood, stamped "Naust" followed by a "lion rampant", and its pitch is about 398/400 Hz.
It could date from about 1730, and therefore not be by the hand of Pierre Naust died in 1709, see below.
This flute is remarkable for its flexibility, a full and round sound, and cross fingerings relatively powerful.
I offer a copy of this flute made of stained boxwood, with imitation ivory rings and silver key, pitch a=400 Hz.
I also offer an extra middle joint for a=392 Hz.
Repertoire : while the French repertoire from the first part of the 18th century, but this flute is flexible enough for also J.S.Bach or Telemann.
Pierre NAUST workshop : Pierre NAUST (ca.1660-1709) whose workshop was on the "rue de L'Arbre Sec", Saint Germain-l'Auxerrois, Paris, is one of the great French woodwind makers from the late 17th to the early 18th century. But it is likely that he did not make this flute, the earliest flutes in four parts having appeared from 1710/1720, after his death.
It may therefore this flute have been made by his widow Barbe Pelletier (died in 1728), operated the shop after the deaths of Peter in 1709, and/or Antoine Delerablée, the employee and her son-in-law (married to her daughter, also called Barbe, in 1719), which was active until his death in 1734.
The Pierre Naust stamp has been used throughout this time, until the installation in the same workshop in 1734 of Thomas Lot who married the other daughter of Pierre and Barbe, Jeanne.
