I once copied a picture of a wooden flute in its case.
Apart from the flute itself I can see something sitting in the case that looks like a small gold colored ring.
I just wonder what is the use of such a ring?

Unless someone else knows better I would guess that it is a grease pot for lubricating the joints before assembling them.

You're exactly right...I have an antique flute of similar vintage that had a similar "pot" made of ivory. Still had some grease/tallow in it. :shock:
