Bright green concertina on eBay

A lot of these vintage concertinas were made in Italy, Germany, and Czech Republic.
Usually the designs are very telling of where they're from. Not often do they use metal face plates either, meaning this was probably a more expensive 'cheapo' model and I'd wager it came from Germany since the REALLY cheapo plywood/paper concertinas were right out of Italy."

 

If I was as curious about it as you are Daniel, I'd just go ahead and buy it to find out - I've been known to do it before now! ?

I have done that too!  But someone else already bought it.

So I wound up owning this one, thanks to the generosity of the c.net member who was the original purchaser from eBay.  The ends, action plates and action levers are all metal.  I wasn't able to access the reeds.  Photos are at https://drive.google.com/drive/folders/1DT8W9cTo3BbRONfq8fpZnPMl35Nv-JWN?usp=sharing .

And now another one of these has turned up on US eBay (at a ridiculously high price) at https://www.ebay.com/itm/265370735719 .   This one is grey rather than green and has a brand and country name: "Brevettata" and "Made In Italy".  I looked up Brevettata and the name seems mainly associated with starter pistols (they don't fire real bullets).  That's all I know...

I'm glad to see my Italian attribution confirmed by this grey one, but (sadly) the "Brevettata" isn't a maker's name - it simply means "Patented" in English.
