Interesting Ebay Concertina

Recommended Posts

Would seem to be of French origin, reeds look very "harmonium" in style.Any one know anything about French makers?



Concertinas were listed in the Great Exhibition (1851) prospectus of Julien Jaulain, of Paris, who also listed flutinas, and a small harmonium called the "panorgue".


Another French maker was Alexandre, whose firm did a lot of harmonium business with Wheatstone's.


There were also makers in Germany & Austria-Hungary. I seem to recall hearing of one in Sweden(?) too.
