Would this be a Wheatstone or a Lachenal MacCann (46b)?

Recommended Posts

Hi to all,

I am puzzled about a 46 MacCann I saw on ebay.

Looking at the ends I thought this may be a Lachenal.

There are Wheatstone labels on both sides which may be not original.

The serial number 2808 is to low for a Wheatstone MacCann isn't it? 

Also the hooked action is not what I would expect on a Wheatstone.

Is this a Lachenal?

Thanks,

Marien

Yes.  Wheatstone used a single series of numbers for all instruments, so they were way beyond that before the first Maccann was produced.  Lachenal had separate series for English, anglo, and duet (and I believe separate even for Maccann and Crane/Triumph, at least for a period).  So that would have to be a Lachenal serial number.
