They were designed for very young beginners and all three originated in Europe. On the left is a Malish 14 bass piano style accordion with 23 treble keys that was made in Russia around 1950. All the keys and bass buttons work and the sound is amazing for a small accordion that measures only 11 inches high by 10 inches wide (with bellows compressed).
The bellows, body, and straps are all in very good condition. This old accordion is still very playable! In the center is a Rigoletto 20 button concertina made in Germany around 1925, I believe.It is also in very nice condition for it's age. I cannot vouch for the playability of this one as I know nothing about playing concertina's. When the buttons are pressed while moving the bellows......... On the right is the real "gem" of this collection: A Tivoli 10 button, exposed valve style accordion (or "squeeze box") with three tone selectors that was also made in Germany around 1900! While there are some mechanical problems.......... Valve seals are very old so there is some "leakage", I have been told by an expert that it could be made to play again. As you can see by the photo's these are very colorful so they make nice decorations and conversation pieces.
We like to display them at Christmas time under the tree as it is very likely some young girl or boy in Russia or Germany received them from Santa on Christmas morning.
