A Lachenal Inimitable model-the one with decorated rosewood ends with the floret inlays and gold tooled bellows.
It is number 32254 which would be around the early 1890’s.
It has rosewood ends, metal buttons, steel reeds and a decorated set of green bellows.
We bought this from auction and it was restored and in concert pitch. I have no clue as to who restored it.
It has a Morris bell attached to the modern hard case and had Velcro strips on the ends so I presume it was played in a band. We have tidied it up and checked the tuning etc.
It is a pretty instrument and plays well. It is fast enough and loud enough without being harsh in tone.
Has a couple of areas of wear on the side rails where obviously it was scratched in the past by some lock screw sticking out on the inside of its original wooden case. I think they are visible on the image of the bellows but they affect nothing and are not very noticeable.
Just one of a massive range of English concertinas not on the site. Please ask if you are looking for something special-it is probably in stock.
