    Dating A Lachenal From The Serial Number

    Wunks, It is hard to estimate the date for No. 21153, because I do not have any receipts in this area. Therfore, I use the following indirect methodology: In my data, the highest numbered English Lachenal with a "Louis Lachenal" label is No 22717. After the change in ownership in 1873, Lachenal & Co. labels began to be used. However, they still had a stock of circular pan labels from the previous ownership, showing "Louis Lachenal," which they continued to use on some instruments. In some cases, the cut out the Louis Lachnel from the label. just shpwing a blank space. In other case, the left the "Louis Lachenal" on the label. A pure guess is that they used the old stock of labels until they were exhausted, after 3 or 4 years, Therefore, I estimate the year of manufacture for No 21153 as circa 1877.

    Miniature Concertinas - Playing English and Anglo

    Certainly Irish style, but also more generally. Sure, you can find exceptionally high pitched tunes, but in general both sides of the Anglo concertina.

    Seth, No. 197411 made in 1926. (I have the receipt for No. 196865, dated 9 January 1926. In this case, I know that it is a 20 key, previously sold on Ebay.) Dick, Seth, and Others, If I am willing to estimate the dates, is it too much to ask that you provide a full description of the instrument?

    DickT, No 39825 - circa 1897 (No 40000 receipt for 1897) I presume it is 56 key and has metal buttons. No 57494 - circa 1919 (No 57772 receipt dated 11 March 1919)

    Miniature Concertinas - Playing English and Anglo

    Stephen I think that this is the right forum. I plan to advertise a number of miniature concertinas--English, Anglo, and Duet--and wold like for prospective buyers to have this backgound on playing miniatures readily available. Secbp, You ar right; they are not toys. Just listen to Tommy Eiliot on English miniature, and Noel Hill on Anglo miniature.

    Rick, I think you have potential as a Lachenal date estimater. I agree with you estimate of 1891. No. 109790--1890. No 128130--1892. I would appreciate if, when asking for a dating estimate, a full description of the instrument be provided. All I know about yours is "Anglo 28 key." Wood or metal fretwork? Bone or metal buttons? Steel or brass reeds? Number of bellows folds? Key combination if other than C/G? Any other distinguishing features?
