£1,300.00

A beautiful Wheatstone 56 key treble concertina with raised metal ends and ebony frames. The serial number is 21623 which falls in the gap in the surviving Wheatstone records and dates it to early 1890s. It has steel reeds in concert pitch and six fold bellows. It is airtight and in good tune.

This concertina is in good playable condition, but is offered for sale unrestored. Fully restored it would command a price several £100 higher. Original case included.
