Lachenal CG

41 button (bone?) including 2 novelty.

Original Nickel plated ends.
Ebony frames.

Drone button has F push C draw 
New 7 fold leather bellows and straps, by Dave Leese.
Re-padded and valved
Long scale reeds. No weighting.
Loud and beautiful full resonant tone.
Lachenal Hook action.
A very responsive player, with tight (as yet, rather stiff new bellows).
Serial no. 91313. Date circa 1890s.
Weight, only 1350grms. Makes this box a delight to handle

Has some slight wood damage to left hand frame.No cracks. Some tarnishing on nickel ends.Various small, age dints on frames. In no way serious, nor affecting solidity or playing performance.

I believe this to be one of the higher grade models sold by Lachenal.
I use this for both tunes and singing. It is indeed a lovely player with the vintage, classy old steel reeded sound.
I have this one for sale as I have taken delivery of another Wheastone.
The price is very reasonable for this lovely instrument.

At £1,850 or very nearest offer.

Cannot upload photos for some reason. Can send separately.

I really wish I could afford this, this is one of my favourite historical designs.
