Concertina Description

This is a decent 48 key Lachenal No 41388-which would be around 1900.

It is basically a Paragon model with rosewood ends, metal buttons, steel reeds but it has a metal plate added around the buttons which is quite attractive but was primarily to stop the wood from being marked by either constant use -or more likely-longer fingernails.

I recenty bought it from a collector and it was half restored with new pads and straps but I have replaced the valves and tuned it to concert pitch. 

I noticed inside a big repairers stamp-I think it was Envoy Worthington-and I have a feeling that it has been professionally increased from 5-6 fold by them in the past but it is  a good job.

It plays well -is in good condition and seems to be robust.
