Dove, another Wheatstone worker, started manufacturing around 1850.
He did not remain in business for long according to Jones, and the company was taken over by Keith, Prowse & Co.. The two Horniman Dove instruments are Nos.217 and 234, and the lowest Prowse No 1156 (Keith, Prowse and Vicker). As noted above the lowest 'Prowse' in the Horniman is No 1156, and the highest No.4842. W Prowse',who ran the company from 1846 to 1865, purchased 16 concertinas from Wheatstone during 1851 (but none in 1852).
A lot of the industry was supplied by small companies, or even individuals, who specialised in making a certain part of the concertina.
It seems probable that the company closed sometime around 1867, when it disappears from listings.
With the limited information available, it is impossible to produce any real dating information for these smaller manufacturers, other than to note their approximate periods of operation.
The following descriptions give what information I have, using the Horniman collection as a basis, along with some instruments which have recently been offered for sale.
Of all the UK makers listed in the Horniman collection, I have not been able to obtain any further information on only Arthur J. A recently introduced resource on the Internet provides opportunities for research into dealers and traders. 'Professor' George Tinckler Case seems to have been much more of a musician and tutor, although Neil Wayne says that he originally worked for Wheatstone. He first appears in listings in 1850 at New Bond St as a Seraphine Maker, but from 1851 this is changed to Concertina Manufacturer.
The Historical Directories website contains a large number of searchable directories for locations throughout the UK. George Jones says he took over from Scates, and around 1856 sold out to Boosey.Robert Dowsett Two directory entries for Dowsett is the only evidence so far found.
