You are viewing a very old antique German made accordion constructed of wood, brass, leather, metal and paper. It has been in our family since the early 1970's and would make a wonderful addition to your home or office. Its maker is Boss Patent Made In Germany. The piece has many flaws such as a missing ivory button, dings on the wood, imperfect button use and a broken fabric woven handle. The accordion plays but needs restoration to really operate as a musical instrument. All in all it is so cool whether you have it restored or use it as is. Unfortunately I can not determine the true age of the accordion but I have seen one similar that was from 1920. The piece measures about 11" x 11" and expands to 17".

If you own an accordion, then you own a bit of musical history. The accordion was invented in the 1800's. It grew in popularity during the 1930's and remains quite popular among accordion enthusiasts. Knowing the age of an accordion gives you some insight into the history of your instrument. In addition, if you're interested in selling the accordion, then knowing its age is important as well. The age, make, model and the condition of the accordion are considered when determining the monetary value of your accordion.
