68 Button Aeola Maccan With Frostina's Association


Recommended Posts

This well used concertina has just appeared in an auction catalogue:

Lot 78.

 

Apart from the desirability of this instrument the apparent link to The Frostina's may be of interest (although I have to admit I had not heard of them). It is certainly worth following the link for the last image in the description - that of The Frostina handbill/calling card (shown below if I have managed to copy/paste correctly). Something of a linguistic and fashion time piece! Some strength would be required to hold those concertinas in that position for a whole performance! Although, not sure if the younger girl is holding a concertina, if she is perhaps it is a large edeophone(?)
