Wow! We had a hard time bringing ourselves to list this. Beautiful, functional 25-key accordion by Patti Bros, Milwaukee. Great hand-carved plastic detail over the grill by the keys featuring a deco-style music note design. Contrasting linear white carved detail at the top corners. Small, easy to carry\/play, and so unique! We're guessing it's from the 1930s-40s based on the company history, details, and style.

Metal plate on side reads: 'PATTI BROS. ACC. MFG. CO., 2050 N. 3rd ST. MILWAUKEE, WIS.'

Cosmetically it has a few scuffs here and there, wooden back inner grill's mesh is collapsed a bit on the inside. The body is missing one of the metal facets on the side that is supposed to attach to the leather strap closure while not in use (the one on the other side is fully attached; stays closed just fine). There is something clunking around inside that could very well be part of the facet. The case is a little musty, however this obviously doesn't effect how it sounds.

This all seems much worse in writing it than it actually is; every key and switch works great and the accordion is fully functional. Wrist and back straps are strong but will probably need to be replaced eventually. Could use some soap and water and a little careful restoration if desired; overall it is a solid instrument and plays beautifully. Bellows are tight and intact. For its age, it is in amazing shape! Please refer to pictures and convo us with any questions.
