  1. Full listing is at https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/333991137861 . Here's a pic:
  2. Alan Day has been trying to contact the French Crane concertina player Jean Mégly to ask Jean for permission to use some of his recordings on the Duet Recordings page http://www.concertinas.org.uk/DuetAudio.htm . (Alan has the recordings but he does not yet have Jean's ok to use them.) Alan is Jean's friend on Facebook, but Alan tells me that Jean hasn't posted on Facebook for quite some time and hasn't responded to Alan's Facebook messages. I asked Gilbert Carrère but he has not had contact with Jean for a number of years. If you might be able to help with this, please messag
  3. So I wound up owning this one, thanks to the generosity of the c.net member who was the original purchaser from eBay. The ends, action plates and action levers are all metal. I wasn't able to access the reeds. Photos are at https://drive.google.com/drive/folders/1DT8W9cTo3BbRONfq8fpZnPMl35Nv-JWN?usp=sharing .
  4. These show up occasionally on eBay and are generally assumed to have been made in Germany or possibly Czechoslovakia.
  5. I hadn't seen one quite like this, though I had heard they existed. Full listing at https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/265140537587 .
  6. And someone is now selling a copy of the Silberhorn book on eBay: https://www.ebay.com/itm/254954007213 .
  7. "On metal ended instruments made for direct sale, a cartouche was included in the right hand fretwork for the name stamp: J Crabb till approx.1908, then H. Crabb till approx. 1926, then H Crabb & Son to closure (1989)." I'm sure that's true, but the fretwork pattern and the seller's story point to a later date. Do you happen to have a serial number? There may be one stamped inside the concertina even if there isn't one on the outside.
  8. Ebay listing is at https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Victorian-Concertina-With-Case/294125576844 . Here's a pic: tjh It's labeled C. Myers, Manufacturer, but it reminds me of this Jones:
  9. If it is a scam, I wonder where the seller got the images.
  10. Previously discussed including comments from Wim Wakker at Concertina Connection in the thread below, but no reports yet from someone who has played one. I'd be interested in seeing that too.
  11. If anyone successfully contacts this company, let us know! I heard several years ago that at that time they didn't seem very interested in selling to customers outside their own country.
  12. I am not sure, but the ends look a bit like the ones on lower-end Crabbs made from about the 1930s through 1950s.
  13. To ICA members: if you're a paid-up member of the International Concertina Association, you should have recently received an email message inviting you to ICA's online Annual General Meeting and concert on April 17. If you are a paid-up member and you haven't received that message, please email the ICA webmaster at webmaster@concertina.org to make sure that ICA has your current email address in our records.
  14. As some of you know, the prior craneconcertina.com site is now managed by the International Concertina Association at https://crane.concertina.org . ICA webmaster Colin Whyles tells me that he is now accepting submissions for the site's gallery page. If you would like to add your Crane to the gallery, fill out the form at https://concertina.org/crane-concertina-submission .
