A Lachenal English No 47992-c 1900.
It has rosewood ends, bushed bone buttons-the bushing is important as it keeps the action quiet-and you don't get it on most bone buttoned instruments, steel reeds and 5 fold bellows.
It has been recently restored with new pads, valves, straps, a bellows rebind and tuned to concert pitch.
This is one of the better of the tutor models with the bushings and the steel reeds so it is well worth considering one of this model which is only a couple of hundred pounds more than the basic Lachenal which has unbushed buttons, brass reeds and 4 fold bellows.
