Chatty concertinist (4/6)

  1. They are indeed steel tongues on brass frames as usual. Some might possibly need replacing, but the majority should be salvageable.
  2. **SOLD** Another restoration project for sale: 48 key, 5-fold bellows, rosewood ends (?), Wheatstone label with the serial number 2091, brass reeds. Currently not in playable condition due to a major split in the bellows. It will most likely need new bellows and new gasket around the frames. It will also need 2 thumb strap screws and loops. The action boards look clean and tidy, and the reed pans look ok as well. The ends are in good condition. Comes with an hexagonal wooden case. Asking £175 + £10 postage (UK mainland). Could ship abroad at the buyers expense. PayPal accepted. Selling it as I received it, no idea about its history unfortunately. I bought it as a project but due to lack to time I’d rather it goes to someone else.
  3. **Now sold** Hi I’m selling this english tutor model in unrestored condition. It has a Wheatstone label but the action is hook and pivot. Serial number 7659. Not sure if the reeds are steel or nickel silver. All the buttons, bolts, and screws are there. Only 1 reed tongue and 1 reed screw missing from the right reedpan. Doesn’t have a case. Please do use the photos to get an idea of what it needs. It is being sold as a restoration project or spares. I’m asking £150 for it - postage included, within the UK only preferably. Paypal accepted, will donate to the forum if sold here. Do send me a private message if interested for more information. Thanks for looking.
  4. Average edeophone, fully original condition, rusted reeds. Number 57529, circa 1915?
  5. I bought it. Surprisingly there were no import costs or any sort of fees, at all.
  6. I bid on it but didn’t expect it to go that high considering it was in Sweden - you’ve bought it at a fair price, would probably be worth 1000-2000 kr more than the hammer price but not much more considering the restoration costs (a lot).
  7. I would recommend DHL, they operate in Bolivia, I don’t know if UPS does. I sent an accordion to Brazil back in January through Parcelforce and it took 3 months to arrive, only to fail the customs clearance (apparently due to insufficient item description...) and now it’s getting returned, and still waiting. I sent an accordion to Chile through DHL about 2 weeks ago and it’s already there. I booked the shipment via parcelhero, the parcel gets sent to a sorting centre here in England so you don’t need to fill any customs invoice papers, they do it for you. I’m not sure about CITES and all the wood-related restrictions.
  8. This concertina is no longer for sale
  9. Would you say is sheepskin leather? Are the card shims glued to the pillars?
  10. Interesting, in my case the small fretwork screw protrudes too far through the action board and is sticking out a little bit. I’d be great if you could open it up and post a photo of the back of the fretwork. Was the red net common on Anglos from this period? I might as well leave it there but it does look a bit odd. When I received (in original condition), the right side was significantly dustier than the left side.
  11. I see, I’ve been told that if the baffles are not replaced, there is a gap as thick as the leather, so the support pillar is not touching the end and therefore not doing what it is there for. And also to prevent dust obviously as the red net that is fitted right now doesn’t help.
