Rare historical concertina?

I was reading a book of poems to my younger brother when I came across a picture of what seems to be a rare nine-sided ten-button Anglo. The age is uncertain but the ends and bellows look possibly German. Any suggestions?

 

You'd better count again, I make that SEVEN sides, and though extremely rare, such concertinas were made in Germany - and I've got a 20-key one in my collection. It's on exhibition, with more of my instruments, at the OaC in Miltown Malbay, and is at bottom right in this photo:

At top left there's a rare 10-key hexagonal one, whilst on the lower shelf there are two 10-key rectangular ones (the original form of the German concertina).

Oops- I suppose my mind was probably in a different place. I’ll edit it ASAP. Interesting about those concertinas, though. I was trying to be funny and was not expecting to actually be right... !

Thanks,

Oskar
