This concertina has been soldType : English
Make : Lachenal
Model : 48 key Inimitable
Price : £875
A beautiful early Lachenal concertina no 19082-which I take to be around 1870. It is labelled for Joseph Higham-a Manchester dealer.
It has rosewood ends with the Inimitable decorations, metal buttons, brass reeds and 5 fold gold tooled bellows. The instrument has been fitted with new pads, straps, springs, valves and tuned to concert pitch.
For concertina of its age it is excellent condition with beautiful looking bellows and undamaged ends.
As with most of these brass instruments it plays quite quietly with a lovely mellow tone.
One of a great range of English concertinas which are not shown on the website so if you are looking for something that you can't see-just ask-us-we are likely to have it.
