Concertina Description

I have never seen one of these before-a marked Shakespeare 48 Key Crane.

It is stamped  "Mozart Co Maker T.S" -which I am sure is Thomas  Shakespeare -a known London maker whose work is rarely marked.

It has metal ends, metal buttons, steel reeds and a brand new set of quality 6 fold bellows.

Newly restored- it has new pads, valves, straps, bellows, bushings and is tuned to concert pitch.

Cranes Duets are always very rare anyway-and much sought after-this one is made in the Jeffries style by a known copyist of Jeffries and although it is not up to Jeffries standards it is well above Lachenal's.

Comes in a Wheatstone hard case
