Hello all, after a long absence. I've been looking in from time to time, but stressful 'real life' has had to take precedence.

Does anyone know what this might describe? Someone has asked me to identify it - an accordion type instrument, but sounds unlike anything I've ever seen. (I've not seen ti.) Likely origin German.
Quote:
....in English it says: Trade Mark and has a picture of two 'anchors' with rope going thru them! It has the wooden buttons on one side that you hang on to which 'pull' the instrument open. Attached to the buttons on the same side are ...I don't know what to call them!!! When you push the button, these 'things' pop up! On the front or the rear are these metal, round, things!...(I think they are on the front...the rear is basically flat! Oh, and there are 10 buttons; only on one 'handle'!

I've asked her for photos...
