I found a definitely possibly (1950s) concertina sighting. These might be some lovely ladies of Clare, and there could be two concertinas in there!?

 

Happy new year.

Hmmm... Might just contain enough make-up for a bevy of 1950's beauties.

Since it's not yet 2018 where your profile says you're located (in fact, it's more than an hour to go even here in Denmark), I have to conclude that you made that up.  B)

I use a ~1950s ladies make-up case for my concertina when I want a good hard case for it. I've made custom blocks and padding so it's a proper case on the inside now, and it looks very smart on the outside, plus has a very solid handle and latches. And a mirror on the inside of the top, if I ever need to apply stage make-up! :rolleyes: 

 

These work very well for concertinas, once you've done proper work to the inside!

My memories, and a little research, suggest that the beehive didn't come in until the 1960s.
