Flauto Reale Italian?

Williams defines this stop as �8' open flues in Venetian organs c. 1800, often treble only.� Grove has a similar definition, but calls it a flute stop. The name means �royal flute�.

Examples

Flauto Reale 8', Organo Principale; Cathedral of Santa Maria, Bastia, Italy; Serassi brothers 1844. This is the only known example.
