So, what's this then? A MacCann Duett with the patent nr 4752 (MacCann?) stamped onto the wooden handle bar. But as to age and other history i am lost. It was bought in an auction in Sweden recently and probably belonged to the "Salvation Army immigration" wave to Sweden around the turn of the century 1900, not later than 1910.

Any better bids?

Ahh yes it also has a number stamped into the left side outer rim of the bellows,  181 0 71.

Any clues?

thanks

Better than what? Are you selling it?

Your avatar suggests that you play some sort of concertina... anglo or duet?

I have no idea what those numbers on the bellows might mean. Definitely not the serial number (which can be found stamped inside), since Lachenal serial numbers for duets never went beyond 4 digits.

Hi JimLucas

No I am not selling. I was referring to better bids as to my history theories.

My mistake.

 

That's a valid use of the word "bid", but (obviously), not the first one that came to my mind.  :o
