  1. Thanks, gentlemen, for your interesting and informative comments. I've learned a lot about concertinas from you. Please come back if you ever find out who this Andreas Morelli really was.
  2. I bought this 48 key English style Morelli concertina, shown in my October 21 post, in 1960 for $100. It has never been played, but all of the notes work. If I decided to sell it, about how much do you think it would bring?
  3. They do look very similar, although I like the scrollwork on mine a little better. So is it that Morelli did not manufacture concertinas, but in order to offer one in their catalog, they purchased and relabeled Stagis (A-48_S) as their own? Is this very unusual? I mean, I searched all over the Internet and have yet to find any other mention of a Morelli concertina.
  4. Here are some photos of the so-called Morelli. I didn't want to disassemble it any further because at this point the next step usually ends up with many small parts flying out all over the place.
  5. I'll see if I can get some photos. Your reply is interesting though -- why do you think it might be a re-badged Bastari, or a re-badged anything for that matter? What was the connection between Bastari and Morelli, if any?
  6. I have a 48 key English Style Andreas Morelli Concertina made in Italy in the late 1950's - Serial Number 5024. As I understand it, Morelli is now a Chinese product. Can anyone tell me the history of Anderas Morelli concertinas? Are there any references that have this information - I would appreciate any leads to information on the Internet, or in books, or other published material.
