Lovely sweet sounding Lachenal 48 key treble English Concertina serial number 57023. This is a beautiful concertina with flat ebony fretwork, nickel buttons and steel reeds. On each end it is fitted with a nickel plated finger plate surrounding the buttons, which appears to be an original feature. It carries a paper label on the right side from “H Boyd Direct Importers of Musical Instruments 16 Pilgrim St. Newcastle” who I assume sold it from new. The concertina is in lovely condition and has hardly been played. I have replaced pads and valves, tuned it to concert pitch and given it a light cleaning clean. It comes with it’s original square leather case which is also in excellent condition with original strap and working catch, though the key is missing.
