Nicely marked in 3 places Firth & Hall 358 Pearl Street New York. According to research Firth and had a music store at that address from 1823-1826. Interestingly John Firth and William Hall reportedly served together in the U.S. Militia and after the War of 1812 both worked in the flute and music shop of Edward Riley of New York City. Later they married Edward Riley's daughters. Firth opened his own business as a musical instrument maker in 1815 - 1819. In 1821 Firth entered into a partnership with Hall. A nice example of an early flute manufactured in America and most certainly from a company that made instruments for the military market.
