What our concertinas look like?

So I don’t believe I ever posted my Dipper but now that the family has grown I will show you both. I have had The Dipper a little over 4 years. It was built in 1981. It is 5 1/2 inches across the flats and weighs 1025 grams. It is a glorious instrument in almost every way. But I had a few concerns. First I worried about traveling with it and I worried about the excessive dryness in my house in the winter even with a humidifier. 
I have been fascinated by what Edward Jay has done with his 3D printed instruments. So I got my new instrument from him this week. It is 6 1/2 inches across the flats and weighs 1187 grams. I am very happy with it. It plays easily and sounds great. Since I am not great player you should visit has website to hear professionals playing it. Makes a great second instrument for me.

Does anyone identify this Wheatstone English Concertina 48 key model name?
The end of material is maybe Rosewood.



Wheatstone's seem to have given their models neither names nor numbers at the time, but these inlaid rosewood-ended ones sold for £12 ,, 12s, and were sometimes described as "for concerts" - so I'd be inclined to refer to them as "the twelve guinea model" or "the concert model".
