I don’t see anything there, either. Just an empty square with a question mark in it and “image.png” (using Safari on a Mac).

 

Can this interface display png’s? Maybe it should be a jpeg.

That image did not work for me on Firefox (asked for a Google login).

I think I've seen those from Italy (or Germany?), but did any of the English makers do that?

 

Piano-fingered concertinas seem to have been a German invention Jim, patented in England on 9th July 1862 by C. F. W. Rust (for F. Glier). After that patent expired they were manufactured in England by George Jones, and later Lachenal & Co.

 

Versions with a diatonic left-hand side ddn't come along until much later again. These catalogue entries are from the Klingenthal firms Meinel & Herold, and Hess, in the 1930s, but I've never seen an English-made instrument of this type:

Yeah, that's the type I was asking about.  And if you've never seen one, I doubt that anybody has.  8^)

I have had a 54 key piano key duet made by H Crabb, metal ended, six inches across the ends . I tuned it to concert pitch and it was sold through the auspices of Emmanuel Pariselle to a French customer who travelled between France and the USA , it was easier to take with him than a large bandonion he also played.

PS this concertina was from the turn of the 20th century

54 pairs of reeds seem an awful lot to fit into that size of concertina.
