Is Delrin available in red??? Colours other than blacK???

Well it's certainly available in white and you would be able to change the colour weekly by swiping your wife's/partner's/daughter's nail varnish. ;)

 

I can just imagine my new look Jeffries now.... :o

I t goes so far off into bad taste it starts to come round the back as fun. Why didn't they finish the job and pretty up all that tiresome wood. It really lets it down. Leopardskin pattern perhaps.

It looks to me like ostrich. Or maybe fetal brontosaurus. Or some other seriously Texan cowboy boot material. Are there cowboys in SA?

 

But the red buttons match the bellows prefectly(sic), dontcha think?

 

But to make it complete--the unit doesn't even play!

I couldn't agree more! If it was basically junk anyway what's the harm? The restorer here had a bit of a laugh and made an old junker into a born again concertina; cocking a snook at the geeky 'preserve it at all costs' brigade along the way. This isn't, and never was, a significant piece of concertina history; the fact that it was resurrected at all is laudable in itself, the tongue-in-cheek bit adds to its charm. Shame about the obvious rust on the reeds, not a good sign that.

Actually, when you think about it, if you're in the back country, and all you have is a broke down concertina, some indigenous leather and a rod to make some buttons from, you might have done the same thing, especially if you were handy. Definitely better to have a working concertina than a broken one of you want to play.
