Would appreciate help dating my newly purchased Wheatstone Aola 56 key treble concertina serial # probably 

36532


 I looked in the ledgers without success.

 

Came with “Price List of Wheatstone English Concertinas” 

dated 1829-1929

thank you in advance.

Malcolm appears to have missed the least “3” from the serial number.

 

this is the page you want:

 

http://www.horniman.info/DKNSARC/SD03/PAGES/D3P0910S.HTM

I don't believe I did, Theo  🙂

Not sure how come the differing page addresses lead to the same page; one of the mysteries of cyberspace, to which I'm sure there's a logical answer, but this isn't the first time I've noticed this happening....

Can you tell me what 5E means?  

 

Here's a c.1956 Wheatstone catalogue, with the specifications of the different models then available, for your perusal. Amboyna-wood was a de-luxe finish.

 

The amboyna-finished Aeola on the front cover is a larger 64-key tenor-treble version of yours, model number 10E.

Not so mysterious. Of every page in the ledgers there is a small and a large representation. In this case their addresses are:

.../PAGES/D3P0910S.HTM 

.../PAGES/D3P0910L.HTM
