Concertina Description

A very tidy Lachenal English concertina No 55351 c 1910. 

It has black ends with a protective metal plate which I think was to prevent damage to the wood for someone playing who had quite long nails. Metal buttons, steel reeds and 5 fold bellows.

It has had all the usual work done-new pads, valves, straps and tuned to concert pitch.

It is in very tidy condition with good bellows and plays very well.

It also has bowing valves but I have never been able to properly explain their use to players so you might prefer to look up what they are supposed to do online!

A great middle range instrument.
