This Alberto Lizzi La Tosca Aorgnetto, antique accordion, belonged to my grandfather a German immigrant. He came to America in 1920. He brought this working accordion with him. It was played on Saturday nights for his family (11 children) and their neighbors.

It plays, the buttons all work, the upper wood was replaced to the exact specifications of the damaged piece, the leather straps are missing. For it’s age it is in remarkable condition and will be well packaged.

It is a true antique and would be a great addition to a collection, a prop or just to show.

6lb 13oz and closed is aprox 13" tall, 11" wide and 6" deeep.
