    What our concertinas look like?

    Hi I,m not a techy but why can,t I attach photo,s ? is 3.91mb a bit limited? Sorry I,m not usually a complainer, but would like to show my concertina.
  2. Hi Just got a new/ used concertina.It,s great & having lots of fun trying to play it.Now the serious part, can anyone help, What is it exactly ? I bought it from an auction site so no information or history came with it.It has a Louis Lachelnal makers name & No; 10104, 48 buttons english, pretty inlay on the wooden fret work. I,m assuming it,s an older model,maybe an inimatable?. Thank you for any help on this.I,ve not attached pics. as the max is only 3.91mb. sorry.
  3. Yeh, now I know what it is I realise what a good deal I got.It does play nice. If I keep practiceing I maybe able to do it justice one day.
  4. Hi, I have just got what I think is an " inimatable " Lachenal 48 english. How can I tell if is one of these rarer models. Does anyone out there have one?😃
  5. So to bring this to a close, it,s an excelsior , From the serial no: 10104 that makes it a circa 1860 ? Is there anyone near me who would like to get together for a session ? i ,m just a beginner, I like up beat stuff, Irish,sing along, american folk, sea shanties not into morris dancing.I live near Harwich Essex. thank you one & all.

    Hi Wolf, Was the excelcior the only type with the scrolling? Yeh, it,s me again hoping I ,ve got the long lost Inimateable with scrolling on the fretwork. Out of curiosity, what numbers on this one ? anywhere near 10104 ?
  7. Hi, The chatty concertinaist found the listing on Ebay, small world. So the pics are there on his link, and the label says, Louis Lachenal, and number 10104. The thing that makes it stand out from the norm is the scrolling on the fretwork.It does have a lovely feel to it, feels like quality.It,s not perfect one of the buttons is a bit dodgy but I can live with that, I,m a beginner but I can tell it,s a good one. Thank you all for your comments. Now, is it an inimateable ?
  8. I have tried to post pics but I get a message saying only up to 3.91mb
  9. There seems to be an undercurrent of blaming Glocesterman for the fact it,s made of turtle shell.Back in the day we all used animal parts/products to make all sorts of things and still do. Turtle shell is not acceptable today, like elephant ivory. When the concertina was made it was acceptable. Now we all know better, so lets get over it and enjoy a lovely old instrument,made by very talented craftsmen.
  10. Thanks for the welcome.Are you an ex pat, Baltic coast, where,s that? I will get pics of my new instrument very soon as it,s in the post at the moment. Just got it off Ebay for what I hope was a bargin price, If it,s an "inimatable", that is. I hope it,s playable as my regular is away getting a service etc. so I,m concertinaless, and missing it badly.
