William Sprague 32 key concertina

William Sprague 32 key concertina, with pierced mahogany end plates, fitted with stained and labelled bone keys, together with mahogany case bearing label with No.7 Finsbury Pavement London address. The concertina measures 15cm wide Condition report: The end plates have damages and losses, there are some screws missing. The bellows have numerous repairs and several holes evident. Two keys do not function correctly as they only play a note on one direction of travel of the bellows. All other keys play one note but not with large volume perhaps due to the holes in the bellows. The case shows signs of a hard working life with small damages and losses including the handle.

Sold for £80
