Wheatstone Anglo Baritones and Basses

Recommended Posts

Has anyone on this forum done an analysis of the Wheatstone ledgers to estimate the numbers of Anglo (Not English) Baritone and Bass concertinas made by Wheatstone?

After 9 years of my searching Chris Algar has found a Baritione for me (thanks Chris), so they must be quite rare.

Thanks

Mike

I have a 40B Anglo and she is beautiful.  Ledger shows she was built in 1921.  Next summer she gets to have a 100 years old birthday!

Thanks Doug,

mine was 100 years old in April this year, it shows signs of being extensively used and only has 30 buttons, nevertheless I'm having fun getting used to its foibles. I don't have any photos yet.

 

Yours is very handsome and adds to my knowledge of how many Wheatsone  Baritones exist by 25%. I notice that yours has paired screws at the corners locating the metal ends whereas mine only has single screw in each corner like most Trebles i've seen.
