Lachenal and Jeffries

Garry W

Recommended Posts

I've posted my old-favorite Lachenal concertina on eBay; it's at https://www.ebay.com/itm/203243728836 . I will also be posting my Jeffries soon. Question: people have told me that my Lachenal is indeed a Lachenal. But I can't find any actual maker's label or mark in or on the instrument. Is there a sure-fire way of knowing whether it is, indeed, a Lachenal?  


P.S. - If you're in the San Francisco area, you can come over and have a look!

Looks pretty much the same as my own Lachenal anglo, with the metal ends going into a rebate. But if we look at your last photo on ebay with zoom-in you can see the lever action - a pressed pivot with a pressed arm passing through its slot and held in place by the spring. That's pretty much standard for a Lachenal action.
