Oboe/Paul Gerard Flute


I just purchased on ebay a vintage Paul Gerard (Paris, France) flute and desire to know more about it. Couldn't find much on Paul Gerard except an answer provided on an Oboe question by Birdog 2010-02-05 11:25:06 on your site. Apparently, Birdog is a collector of Paul Gerard made instruments. Is there a way you could connect me with Birdog to see if he might be interested in adding this flute to his collection or provide me with more info?  Thanks so much.

I have tried using the old answer to contact Birdog. I'll see if there is a response and let you know.

Send me an email and I will send on to you anything that transpires.

Sorry for the delay
