Here's an old accordion that Bruce Triggs owns. It's made by Stahltone in Germany and has steel reeds, but we've no idea of how old it is or who Stahltone were.
Do you know anything about Stahltone ? If so please leave a comment.

Sorry, I don't know anything about your instrument. But I own one very similar to it. I was told by my older brothers that it came over "on the boat" with my grandparents. If you've found anything out since your posting I would be glad to find out more.

I must follow Jeff with his comment. I also know nothing about a very similar Stähltöne instrument, hower the instrument that I have is less rich in ornaments on the front. It was among a number of accordeons the favorite accordeon of my oncle because it is rather small and easy to handle. He was a international trainmachinest before World War I. The accordeon is still morfe or less funcional

I guess that CA Wunderlich is the shop where it was bought. Siebenbrunn seems to be a part of Bavaria.

"Stahltöne" is not the name of the accordion. It's a German word meaning "steel reeds". The harp logo with letters B. H. & S. is the trade mark of the maker. Unfortunately I don't recognize it. In my opinion this instrument has been made before the First World War. In those days steel reeds were quite new thing. Accordions with steel reeds were "better" than those with brass reeds. That's why there was a "Stahltöne" plate in many accordions.

I just picked up a similar instrument for my Dad who is 87, It looks very like the picture except the buttons are white with black centers and look like ivory. The owner said it was from the 1920's and also has the name KOCH on the cover of the felts.

Me, too. I have an 11 button one that I got from the Jewish Quarter in Prague. It's really hard to play, but it works well. I am trying to find the buttons/information on line to play it, but I'm not having much luck.
