Well ABOUT history actually...

Would anyone have an approximate date of when flute makers started to use posts for keys
instead of blocks? I have an English flageolet made of boxwood with posts and for the life of me
can't find any infon on when the beast might have been made. (No marks, of course..).
Thanks in advance.

Post, or pillar, mounting was included in flute maker CLAUDE LARENT's 1806 patent for glass flutes. So the concept was inplace most certainly at that time.

The Boston MFA has a Firth and Pond from c1830 with post mounted keys and a Laurent crystal flute c1837 again with posts. So at the very least, post mounting was common enough by the 1830s.
