Lovely carved Bosnian Dvojnice flute likely dating from the middle of the last century. In good cosmetic condition but may be missing a reed or similar as it doesn't play a note. A beautiful item to display on a shelve.

The dvojnice is a double flute made of a single block of wood. It has a single mouthpiece, but two channels that direct the air flow into two separate pipes. This example from Bosnia has four finger holes on the right side and three on the left and is decorated with carved geometric designs. The dvojnice is a pastoral instrument common to many countries of the Balkans; a shepherd would play it while following his herd or performing for his friends.
