This concertina has been soldType : Anglo
Make : Lachenal
Model : 20 Key Anglo
Price : £800
Another rare concertina-a Lachenal 20 key that is only 5 inches across the ends. This is not really a miniature but is noticeably smaller. I am not sure whether these were made for ladies or young children but they are certainly pretty -and usually play well if they are in good condition-and this is the best I have seen!
It has rosewood ends, bone buttons, steel reeds and 6 fold bellows. It is number 68907 which I believe is around 1884 because it is dated inside the case-which is also in good condition. It is in C/G.
It has just been restored with new pads, valves and tuned to concert pitch.
I have never seen one of these in such good condition. It looks, sounds and plays fabulously and these smaller concertinas are quite powerful.
Has the L & Co logo built into the fret on the right hand side.
You won't see many of these-certainly not as nice as this one.
