Concertina Description

A 28 key Lachenal anglo no 53811 which would be around 1880.

It is labelled for Metzler and Co in London who sold lots of Lachenal instruments.

It has mahogany ends, bone buttons , brass reeds and 5 fold bellows. 

It has recently been fitted with new pads, valves , straps and is tuned to concert pitch.

The bellows have had a rebind and re-paper.

Most brass reeded Lachenals are not very quick but this one plays better than many of the steel reeded ones. It is quick and pleasantly loud. 

Both ends have repaired cracks  so this is not a beautiful instrument-but it is a player and at its selling price is a real bargain.
