Description

Superb Lachenal AflatEflat 38 key Anglo concertina. It has nickel ends, nickel buttons, steel reeds and original seven fold bellows. This is a very unusual and desirable concertina.  Lachenal made very few 38 key anglos, and it’s unusual to have seven fold bellows as originals and even more unusual to have parallel reed chambers instead of the usual radial design.  The serial number is 196487 which would date it to the late 1920s.  At present it is waiting for a full overhaul.  The photos are in as found condition.  It’s currently in it’s original high pitch so it could be tuned up to A/E or down to AbEb concert pitch or to GD.
