'Jubilee'

The “Jubilee” model. Mechanically similar to the “standard” but with Sapele veneered sides and ends, using a design inspired by an 11th century Norman church wall decoration. The bellows papers are colourfully decorated with designs and scenes taken from wall paintings in various 11th-13th century Norman churches in East and West Sussex.
Brass buttons, brass fittings, wooden ends with felt bushing. A richer, more mellow sound.

This model is also available, with stainless steel or brass buttons, with the ends, sides and bellows papers in black.
