Wheatstone concertina dating, introduction
If the one Mayfair I've handled was typical of the breed, they were truly horrible. This secondary chamber is the wind-chest, and in this most fascinating prototype, Wheatstone designed a single-action concertina with a central sprung bellows section feeding two such wind-chests, one for each end of the instrument.
Horniman Museum the Horniman Museum The Horniman Museum in London is home to the largest collection of concertinas more than instruments and much related archival research material.
Among the stated aims of the Horniman Museum are those of continually increasing access to its collections, and promoting research in them. I have told parts of this story myself, and even circulated a table that I calculated, based on ledgers available at the Horniman Museum, showing the dramatic decline in concertina production after the s: There apparently was a large imperial trading company of that name, with interests in Australia and in South Africa, and they would have had a London office.
Later ledgers from the Dickinson Archives contain production records from to C 8 sided stretched64 keys, raised ebony ends,conventional frets. The ledger entry shows that No.
They contain a wealth of detail for the industrial and the social historian, including the payments made to tradesmen who provided supplies and services to the Wheatstone workshops. He was later to produce his own artificial voice device in The ledger entry records its sale on 12 September to Captain Charles Stanley, who concertina dating thus be prepared for his military duty, probably in India. A simple foot treadle inflates the wind chest, and the bellows are free to rise up on internal brass rods and guides.
And of course even those and worse can make great music, when properly set up, in the hands of a good player. The generally-accepted story about Wheatstone concertina production has been that Wheatstone made concertinas English, Anglo, and Duet from serial beginning aboutending with or so in the mids.
The action and action board: Using a bequest from Wheatstone's will, King's College University Council erected a special gallery at King's to display his inventions in the Old George III Museum,a room still called the 'Wheatstone Laboratory', and from where many of the surviving Wheatstone concertinas dating now conserved in the O M Collection were dispersed during the concertina dating forty years. Wheatstone's Prototype Concertinas The group of prototype and patent-model concertinas in the C M Collection show the many lines of research Wheatstone was following during the earliest days of the instrument; variations found in these instruments include: His lecture of 15 Feb on 'Resonance', delivered by Faraday was illustrated by some Javanese musical instruments, by the jew's harp, and by the khon or khone, a bamboo and free-reeded bamboo mouth organ having resonant tubes associated with metal free reeds.

It was around that the Folk Song Scene took off, and everybody was wanting to play concertinas. See also English pricelists from Wheatstone.
But my own Wheatstone is a keeper. I have also seen the theory that in the s some concertinas were assigned serial numbers based on two digits of the year of manufacture--so that " " would be the 73rd concertina made infor example.
