Grateful to know if anyone has any English 48 button concertina with a serial number close to 112. I am trying to identify the maker. Rosewood ends.  Riveted action. Square ended reed shoes. Not Wheatstone or Lachenal. Only mark other than the s/n are 'L' and 'R' marks for the ends.

Fretwork designs were sometimes more specific to the actual fret cutter than any particular "maker" as such, whilst that design was used by both English and French concertina builders.

 

Internal photos of the levers and reeds might reveal more...

Reed pan here. (Some reeds are late additions.)  Pics of the levers are not available to me just now.
