Looking for information - Lachenal New Model Crane on eBay

Recommended Posts

There is a nice looking Lachenal New Model 55B Crane for sale on eBay in the UK:

https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/114220034205

 

I wonder if anybody here knows this instrument.  The seller lives in Little Beckford near Tewkesbury.

 

If you do know this concertina then would you please contact me via the forum's messaging system.

 

Thx.

I'm guessing the seller is c-netter 'Sprunghub', who comes from that part of the world, and is an honourable person to deal with.

I hope it isn't him because the seller writes "A developing hand condition means I can no longer comfortably play." Needless to say, it's a terrible thing to happen to anybody...

Don’t know the seller but I know that this particular concertina (389) was sold unrestored back in 2011: https://www.worthpoint.com/worthopedia/early-lachenal-cranes-duet-concertina-161598198

 

Browsing on the internet I found that the seller is a member of this forum though he hasn’t been active since November 

 And he also advertised it on ebay back in November 2016: https://picclick.co.uk/LACHENAL-CRANE-DUET-CONCERTINA-No-389-55-232140867616.html

and this other website: https://abyhom.co.uk/details/?id=22441&cate=music 

 

I just acquired the exact same 55-key new model very recently (though mine is labelled “The Triumph” No.3990 and is unrestored) and is an absolute joy of an instrument.

Hi Don, I have PM'd you..... 

 

RCR, pretty good detective work if you were looking at the previous owner and party who had the restoration work carried out at their behest, but not the current one, hence I do not live ( or have ever lived in Spalding ) and have not advertised it previously and that is not my 'thread' 😉.  

 

A little knowledge as they say....

Mere coincidence that 2 55-key crane duets popped up almost at the same time; I was just searching information about the model and found this.

I have an identical one, currently out on loan but it will need some retuning and restoration before it will be ready to leave.
