Rudall Rose Carte & Co. London 1852-1871
1852 est. as successors to Rudall & Rose, on Carte becoming a partner; 1855/56 took over 'Key & Co.' as 'Key, Rudall & Co.', becoming sole agents for A. Sax woodwinds. 1856, on Rudall's retirement, Carte became proprietor. Under Carte's management the firm changed 'from a flute manufactory into an important military music establishment' (Rockstro)
1852-54: 100 New Bond St.
1854-57: "" "" "" and 20 Charing Cross
1858-71: 20 Charing Cross

Based upon the above information (the Rudall & Rose company, predecessors to Rudall Rose Carte & Co., had the patent rights to the Boehm's flute system in 1847 ) were, as far as I can see, pretty much exclusively creating flutes until at least 1856 (when Carte became manager), making the c.1854 date suspect. I would make an educated guess at late 1850s, after Carte had management for a couple of years and the requisite skilled labor could be found.

But ... I could be wrong!
