  1. I saw it, and I did bid on it. I was hoping to get it for less than a 1000 then get it restored, thinking it was my chance to get a great concertina but it just shot up to silly money. I had not seen it physically but from the description from Stephen Chambers, [ previous ] maybe I got lucky to be out bid. It could have been a money pit and ended in divorce if the boss had found out. I guess I,ll never know. The cost of top class concertina,s have just gone crazy this last year or two. As I,m looking to upgrade and don't want to have to sell one of my ferrari ,s to pay for it.I wish!

  2. 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 ?

  3. 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.

  4. 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.
