A very nice playing Louis Lachenal No 12841 from around the 1860's I would guess.
It has rosewood ends. bushed bone buttons, brass reeds and green 5 fold bellows.
Has been restored with new pads, straps, valves, bushings and is tuned to concert pitch.
It does have couple of minor cracks on the left hand side-as most of these do-but they are nothing to worry about and will cause no issues.
As with a lot of these Louis Lachenals from this time-they have good reeds and play very well.
Quick but not loud. A very sweet, gentle sound which will suit learners, people who live surrounded by other people, or singers.
Just one of a massive range of English concertinas in stock which are not on the website-so ask if you are after something special.
