Looks like the same leaded window as an earler sale, o'erlooking happy workers scything the wheatstones to the tune of bread cheese and cider

 

Jeez, the Jeffries is a looker, hey!!?? Twenty buttons and a non standard pitch might keep it affordable; a bit like getting a Dino 308 GT4 2+2 since you've always wanted a Ferrari...

Had it not just been retuned, I probably would have succumbed and bid on it.

 

Edited to add: Actually, no probably about it. The thought that there was a lovely original tuning Bb/F and someone (clearly meaning well) had it retuned to equal temperment/modern pitch as part of a restoration is just painful.
