I have just acquired a twenty button Lachenal & Co concertina. It is labelled Steel Reeds and the serial No is 196122. It has a leaky bellows and one note always sounds, so it needs a bit of repair, as does its case, which has been forced open at some stage. I would be grateful for info on its Date of Manufacture. I have attached a photo. Is the woodwork rosewood?

I have the receipt for number 196865, which is of the same model but with 30 keys, and was sold (new) for £5.0.0, on 9th January 1926. So yours must date from around 1925-26.

 

The external finish is rosewood veneer.
