Any idea of when my Lachenal Duet Crane was made?

I have a 48 key Lachenal Duet with Crane (Butterworth) configuration. The serial number inside the unit is 486 and is found on the reed pans of both ends.


Any idea of when this was made?

Also, what is the correct pronounciation of the name "Lachenal"?

Hi Zak,

A number that low would be very approximately around 1905.


I always say Lash-en-al, but that could be wrong!


I say Lach en all. That might be wrong too. :P


And me, and everyone else in the concertina world that I've met I think.
