  4. Thanks Wes, I have also found a photo of an English Wheatstone with glass buttons but no Anglo , it’s in D/A tuning , appears to be a bit of a rarity.
  5. I bought a Lachenal Anglo 38 glass button from a Car Boot many years ago, its a wreck and still in want of repair, there was only a couple of glass buttons remaining and my question is has any body a picture of one its metal ended 38 keys, I have never seen one . not many made probably.
  6. Got the same one Alan at a Car boot sale, make nice earings.
  7. thanks Cohen, already seen that one a while back, not up to the job I`m afraid
  8. I know they are very rare but its worth a try, it must be in top condition, not asking much is it. I have only ever seen one and that belonged to Keith Kendrick,
  9. I feel very privileged to of waited only 11 years for my wonderful F/C Anglo in the lower scale it was well worth waiting for, a fantastic instrument and a great source of pleasure as I`m sure yours will be.
