It's here.

 

OK. Daniel,

I know you are waiting for comments, so I'll bite:

 

Could have an interesting hisstory.

 

Perfect accompanying instrument for a pub crawl.

 

THE instrument for playing the Monty Python theme.

 

I'm sure there will be other contributions to thread creep.

Daniel and Greg,

 

I went to a barn dance in New Braunfels, Texas back in the late '80's. The place was filled with people of Czech descent. When I walked in, people were doing a line dance to a Czech polka and I seem to re-call a band member playing an instrument similar to the one you just spotted on ebay. How it would have made it back across the pond to England is a mystery unless the maker made more than one of them or maybe the band member died and willed it to a relative back in Europe.

 

How was that for a bite.

The seller tell me this instrument was inherited from his late aunt, Anna Conda. :rolleyes:

Chris,

They neglected to inform you that the owner before her was titled and Sir Robert Pence.

The instrument, of course, was referred to as the Sir Pence concertina.

 

Greg :P

Monty Python?

 

Thanks

P.S. The snake puns are hissterical. I would try to adder some more, but don't want to make an asp of myself.

I would point out that "Sir" goes with the first name, not the last, but that might be too constricting.

 

(please don't strike me)
