  1. For auction by STRIDE & SON. Southdown House, St Johns Street, Chichester, West Sussex, PO19 1XQ see here : https://www.ukauctioneers.com/auction_catalogue.cfm? itemID=20E9CB0FD7D726F9D5E5FECEFF5E06E5E72DA8C2&auction=29EDC80D Lot 1472 An antique rosewood concertina accordion, labelled Lachenal & Co. Estimate: £80 - £100. Not much of a description. From the single picture of the right hand end, it seems the thumb strap is missing, being replaced by a strap across the back of the hand. From the way it is sitting on the shelf, flat on the left end, it would seem that the fittings from that end are missing as well; perhaps even the buttons?? Jake

Patent Concertina Manufacturers London W.C.’' Estimate: £200 - £400 Only one picture but looks to be in very good condition. (on the outside anyway!!) The label says Lachenal so why they claim a Wheatstone connection I don't know?? Jake

Jake edit :- Looking at the second image, which shows the bellows extended, you can see that the ends have a narrow slot cut into alternate sides??
  5. Well spotted CrP!! I did notice it but made no comment until I recieved some more pictures from the auction house. I am awaiting their permission before publishing further. It is indeed a metal hand rest and the design of the fretted end continues under it in a single design. There are 19 buttons on the left end, one button is missing, there are two buttons under the left thumb and two more in front of the rest. Jake
  6. A duet, mmm, I did wonder but thought that those of you more knowledgable than myself would make an appropriate correction! Jake Edit : Of course!!! We're looking at the right-hand end and there's NO air button!!

  8. At auction 17 th December by SILVERWOODS, Clitheroe, Lancashire, UK. Lot 260 An early 20th century English concertina, possibly L. Chenal London, thirty-four button, pierced white metal ends, steel reeds, six fold bellows, ebonised and gilt hexagonal case, rosewood carry box. Estimate = £300 - £500. see here : http://www.the-saleroom.com//en-gb/auction-catalogues/silverwoods-of-lancashire/catalogue-id-srsil10017/lot-8d6046a8-9ee7-411f-8720-a56200d980ca?utm_source=auction-alert&utm_medium=email&utm_campaign=auction-alert&utm_content=lot-image-link When they say "ebonised and gilt hexagonal case" I guess they mean that the carcases are ebonised and the leather on the ends of the bellows is embossed & gilded? The metal end has 2 extra holes on each of the straight sides about half an inch in from the corners. There appears to be 2 holes in the end plate by the end of the buttons. There appears to be 2 holes in the end plate each side of the air button. Jake
