Bellows paper pattern?


Recommended Posts

Does anyone recognise the pattern of the bellows papers here?

A description of the instrument is at https://pghardy.net/concertina/lachenal_32801/lachenal_32801.html, including a shot of the inside of the bellows.

 

I don't think they are original (not a standard Lachenal pattern?) but are certainly not new. Any guess at the maker? Or are they just some decorative additions to original black bellows?

 

Regards,

Paul,

 

it's the Lachenal Art Deco style paper, I started to do the artwork for printing plates, but there was so few of them that I never bothered to finish it. there would not have been the demand to make the exercise wash it's face.

Probably not a good idea to use this pattern as it is too similar to another pattern, which would give the wrong impression of the person who would have it on their concertina. At least I hope no one would deliberately put it on their instrument.
