Gardiner Houlgate, the well-known west country auctioneers, are holding a musical instrument sale on 12th & 13th March. Among the lots, are three concertinas, two Maccann duets and a very early Wheatstone treble English concertina, with 32 buttons. Its s/n is 880 and it dates from 1845. It is unusual in having no obvious fretwork on the ends. The ends have circular cut-outs with what appear to be pine baffles located behind, suggesting that is the rarer, circular-fretted variant available at the time. The concertinas are on page 2 of the catalogue, numbered lots76, 77 & 78. The link to the webpage is below. http://gardinerhoulgate.co.uk/Catalogues/mi120315/page002.html Chris
