Lachenal 55 key Maccann duet concertina s/n 892 for sale.
Approximate year of manufacture is 1890. The concertina has a 6 fold bellows, comes with a wooden box which has a Lachenal label in the lid. The serial number is lost from the outside of the concertina but is marked on the inside, please see the last two pictures below.
One strap bar (right hand side) is marked "Trade Mark, English Made" and on the reverse is marked "Patent No. 4752" which is the Maccann patent of 1884.
All keys work in both directions but some reeds need tuning. There is a very slight bellows leak, I can feel it, but otherwise the bellows are in good condition.
If you would like high resolution pictures of any or all aspects of this concertina then please let me know.
