Chris Ghent Posted January 14 Share Posted January 14 (edited) This concertina has historical significance in Australia. Its provenance is obscure, but I expect it is basically at its core made by one of the big makers but with add-ons. Serial number 15,569 would seem to confirm this but there are unusual things about it. The temptation is to think Lachenal but the riveted action is uncharacteristic and the end design is like no other Lachenal I have seen. The reeds seem wide to me, suggesting Jones? The serial is punched in without ink. There are batch numbers. The button holes in the end are bushed. There are the signs of threaded captive nuts for the straps. Does anyone spot maker clues for any part of this concertina. There was a person a few years ago who charted the different styles of action by maker but I can not find reference to his findings online. Can anyone direct me to his work? Sorry I can't seem to get control over rotation of the images. Whatever I do they come out like this.
