30-button rosewood Lachenal Anglo

Recommended Posts

I'm selling this one on behalf of a regular customer who is thinning the herd a little. It has been through my usual restoration process - new pads, valves, dampers, bushes and straps, plus tuning to modern concert pitch. I have not, however, refinished the woodwork. There are no cracks or breaks in the fretwork, but what you get is the patina that arises from a century of music-making. I have re-bound the bellows, treated them to a new set of green and gold papers, and shimmed the end seals to keep the instrument beautifully airtight. The result is a lovely player, and very good value at £1700.

As always, you're welcome to come and try it if you're within striking distance of Norwich, or call me with any questions on 01603 702644.

The serial number would be much appreciated. You know that I like to estimate the year of manufacture.

The serial number is 125981. And by the way, I forgot to mention that it's in C/G.

On the subject of dating, I'm not sure whether your database covers only Lachenal Anglo's, but in case it also includes English models, I sent you a PM last October, which you may not have spotted, so here's the gist of it again:

"I just spotted a Lachenal treble in an auction in Felixstowe which I hope will make a small contribution to your dating database. It comes with its original receipt, dated 11th March 1919, and the serial number is 57772."

All the best,
