 11 holes??

ok i bought a wooden flute years ago from a stand at the fair. now i'm trying to find fingerings for it. it has a total of 11 holes. 8 on the top with the last one space way away from the others. two on the bottom, one of which is near the top the other reverse of that one set apart, and then one hole on the the right side near the top. does anyone have any clue what kind of flute it is there alone a fingering chart for it????? the cut in the top for the moth is on the bottom of flute on the same side as the two holes. and there is no mouth piece, it's flat. does this make sense to anybody??? thanks.

Could it be a type of Xiao? This is a Chinese instrument.

This is an 8-hole duct flute. The normal playing position is with left hand at the top, and right hand below. The two holes at the end (one on top and one underneath) are not intended to be covered. They change the sound in some way but can be ignored.

I haven't been able to find any exact equivalent to this anywhere on the Web, so it looks as if you'll just have to figure out the fingering yourself.

Start with your left thumb covering the back hole, and your left fingers 1, 2 and 3 covering the top 3 front holes. Cover the other four front holes with the fingers of your right hand.

Now start uncovering the holes one by one starting at the bottom and see do you get a scale.
