Price : £2700
This is an amazing Crabb Aeola Crane with raised and engraved metal ends, metal buttons, steel reeds and eight fold gold tooled bellows.
It has been restored quite recently and fitted with new pads, valves, straps and tuned to concert pitch.
The instrument also comes in a brand new , quality, handmade fitted leather case which was crafted for it by its previous owner.
It also comes with a load of paperwork which tells some of its story-especially of who owned it in the 1930's.
That paperwork also reveals the fact that-for some reason-the owner had a complete set of top period Wheatstone reeds put in it at the Wheatstone factory.
Cranes are rare-and very sought after. Large Cranes-even more so.
Don't think about it for too long if it is of interest!
