You are offerding on a beautiful 19th century Accordion / Concertina / Squeeze Box / Harmonika. It measures approx. 14 by 8 by 13 inches and weighs approx. 11 lbs. before packing. There is an plate on the front with two angels and engraved writing "A. StEINER HARMONIKA ERNEUGER TOKAJ. Beautiful woodwork with inlayed panels and engraved metal molding. The keys are bone. The bellows have a beautiful design.
I think this concertina is from Slovakia or Czechoslovakia or possibly when that area was known as Hungary. It still plays but is in need of restoration. There is a missing piece of metal molding across the front and some chips to the veneer in places. All in all it is not too bad though and could be restored. Also missing one of the metal "horns" on the front. Please scroll down to the bottom of this page and examine all the photos carefully. Sold "as is" in found condition. The bellows are pretty tight and work well. They are just missing one small metal corner.
