Dear C.netters,

 

This offering on eBay is claimed to be a Lachenal......what do you think?

 

Regards,

Neil

 

PS Apologies, my woodchuck changed 'Lachenal' in the title of this post to "Lacunal' and I can't find a way to change it. N

I am going with Tidder on this one simply based on the template for the fret work.

Thanks Nicx66,

 

With your lead, I now see that there have been a couple of C.net post with photos of a very similar fretwork design, albeit in a 30b version, that has been attributed to Tidder:

Yes, a Lachenal would have had the reed trade mark on the palm rest, and possibly steel reeds stamped on it too.

 

And the buttons are fatter than Lachenal's (which I would like) and seem to be a tighter fit, which hints at the George Jones influence.

I see the seller has withdrawn it.

I see he's in Stoke on Trent. Maybe he sold it to Chris Algar.

If my memory serves, early Lachenals didn't have reed trademark on the palm rest. Can anyone give me the exact year of the first trade mark ?

I came across the answer http://www.concertin...ction/index.htm

2. Anglo System

  Without trade mark = 1862–1879 With trade mark = 1879–1933
