Wanted: English with riveted reeds


Recommended Posts

I know these are not so common but if anyone has one for sale I’d be interested, in any condition. These were Wheatstone concertinas from the 1860s and 70s when E. Chidley was in charge I believe. Photo attached for reference.

I have one of these riveted reed instruments.  It is a Cramer Co., Richard Blagrove Select.  It is fully playable as I recall but in old high pitch and basically unrestored.  Not sure if I want to part with it as I am a huge Blagrove fan but if you really want or need it then I will let it go.


Why the interest in such an old instrument?


Here's a similar one in the Concertina Museum:
