This concertina came in as a part exchange in an upgrade situation.
It is a Lachenal tutor model-but a higher grade one with bushed buttons, brass reeds and 5 fold bellows.
It is marked inside that it was restored by Andrew Norman-I seem to remember that it was in the 1980's. I put a new set of pads on as they had not been changed, replaced a few of the valves that had lifted and touched up the tuning which had obviously wandered a little after years of playing.
I have cleaned it up. it isn't as tidy as I would like it to be but it is sound and does plays well -with a lovely gentle tone but good speed.
Has its original case which just needs a strap fitting.
