For sale: Early Nickolds English concertina for restoration


Recommended Posts

Trivia, but you did ask! -

John Henry Ebblewhite established a wholesale and retail musical merchandise establishment at 24 Aldgate in 1840. He is listed in directories for 1850, 1856 and 1861 as a concertina maker. Ebblewhite also 'made' concertinas supplied by Lachenal. Most of the other entries describe them as Importers. The address changes to 4 & 5 Aldgate at the end of that century when streets were renumbered. By 1921 the name has changed to Albert Victor Ebblewhite (his son). The firm closed in 1966 after the death of the son. They produced many banjos from the early 1880s to 1921, and all are labelled as Ebblewhite made but were made by either Windsor, Wilmshurst or Matthews.
