A Lachenal treble concertina No 57801-around the time of the First World War.
It has rosewood ends, bushed bone buttons-for a quiet action-which most bone buttoned ones do not have-and steel reeds.
It has been restored with new pads, valves , straps and tuned to concert pitch.
It has its original Lachenal wooden case-which we have not restored-but it could easily be done.
If you want a budget priced genuine English concertina which plays and sounds well-this is for you.
It plays almost as well as the steel-reeded Paragon models with the metal buttons-which it probably is-just with bone keys.
One of a huge range of English concertinas most of which are not on the site.
