Concertina Description

You rarely ever see these-a Lachenal anglo which is in normal pitch but is only 5 1/2 inch across the flats instead of the usual 6 1/4 inches.

I have no idea whether these are ladies' models or primarily for children -but both are possibilities.

It has rosewood ends-which are new as the original ones were beyond repair-steel reeds, bone buttons and a new set of quality 6 fold bellows.

I have the original case  but the lid is off and it will need some restoration.

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

It plays very well and these smaller concertinas-which are almost always 20 keys-are very popular and sought after. I am sure that a 26 key, more useful layout , will be even more sought after. 

If you have small hands or have a talented  child-this could be perfect

The last image shows it next to a normal sized English to give some idea of its size.
