Shame Flute - German punishment for being a poor musician
A 'Shame Flute' ('Schand Flote') - German punishment for being a poor musician - you had to face the public wearing (around the neck) a heavy iron 'flute'! The un-talented culprits would have their neck and fingers locked in this humiliating device while publicly ridiculed by their critics. Date: circa 1908
