Yuxin Ding Posted November 21, 2022 Share Posted November 21, 2022 (edited) According to price quotes from many resources, vintage concertinas of equal quality, whether English or Anglo, asked for similar prices. Some of the Anglo were even more expensive than the English for those made in the late 19th and early 20th centuries, regardless of the one-of-a-kind special models. In the promotional materials at the time, the price of the Anglo was usually lower than that of the English. I was once told that the Anglo concertina was a working class instrument, so I wonder if the price of the Anglo today is due to the poor living conditions of Victorian and Pre-war British workers, caused many Anglos to be damaged or even destroyed, which raised the price of those survived or refurbished.
