Fair Price For Lachenal English?

Recommended Posts

I have a Lachenal English concertina which I wish to sell, but I have no idea what a fair asking price would be. Can anyone help me? The concertina dates from the late 19th or early 20th century (according to Steve Dickinson) and is a 48-key treble with rosewood ends and bone( I guess?) buttons.

 

This concertina was completely refurbished by Steve Dickinson in the late 1970s. He replaced the bellows with a six-fold one, with attractive bellows papers and replaced springs, reeds, pads, etc. Since then, I have hardly played it (I have a Wheatsone 56-key tenor-treble which I play all the time), so it is in great condition. Steve also made a new box, which is brown leather.

 

I'd appreciate any help anyone can give regarding a fair asking price. Could you indicate whether you're talking US or Canadian dollars (I live in Canada).

 

My e-mail is theryans@vianet.ca

 

Thanks,

Tom Ryan

Why not have a chat with Frank Edgeley (contact info in the Concertina FAQ). He's in Canada and has more experience than most in these matters.

 

Speaking for myself, I should have thought perhaps 800 UKPounds, but I feel somewhat uncertain about that.
