Concertina at auction

Hammer price was £1,300 so cost including buyers premium and VAT was £1,581.


I thought this was a Shakespeare too - the bird motif is very similar to other fretwork I've seen of known Shakesepeares, (but interestingly nothing like the fretwork of 30 and 38key metal ended Shakespeares which have appeared recently both here and on ebay). The papers and bellows gilding looked very Crabb-like


I suspect the restored price/cost/value will be close to the top end for a Shakespeare, depending on the key but it looks a very pretty instrument.


Anyone here win it? What key is it?
