Charles Mathieu, Paris, active 1890-early 20th century. Likely a metal flageolet. The mark is a lyre. Charles Ullmann took over the factory circa 1894.

Hello and welcome!

This board doesn't have the capacity to host files for people. If the photo is already online somewhere you can add a link to its location. If it isn't already online, you'll have to find a way to get it there using an image hosting service like google photos, Flickr, Imgur, or another site. If none of those are options for you, let us know, someone here will likely be able to help!
