Jennie, I find this interesting as I have a (both soundwise and as to the looks) beautiful Lachenal Excelsior which may be in need of a bellows replacement. With the instrument as advertised here, a repairer was apparently able to save the gilt toolings on the leather covering the frames. Do you have any information as to how, or who the repairer was?
Good luck with your sale - Wolf
(or, on second thought, is it just a newly-embossed replacement-bellows?)

Hi Wolf. The concertina was repaired by Dave Elliott in Sheffield.
Thank you for Jennie - it hadn't occurred to me that the information re the renovation also applied to dealing with the bellows.
Best wishes - Wolf
