A Lachenal New Model Maccann Duet No 2882 which I would estimate to be around 1910.
It is called a, "New Model," because it has the raised ends which was the earliest variation on the basic concertina when it was introduced somewhere in the 1880's. This raised end, six sided variant was produced in English, Anglo and Duet instruments right through to the end of the Lachenal period-around 1933.
This particular one has metal ends and buttons, steel reeds and 6 fold bellows.
It comes in its original case -which is not in top condition but could be restored.
The instrument itself is in very tidy state and has been fitted with new pads, valves, straps and tuned to concert pitch.
It plays well and is a great instrument for a Maccann duet improver.
The lowest note on the right is a G as it is on 55 keys.
