Beautiful Italia Cooperativa
L'armonica Stradella Super de Luxe Accordion
Case and straps included.
Lovely condition as you can see in the photos. Produced between 1930 - 1935.
This is my father's accordion. It is a reluctant sale but it is too heavy for him now therefore he is selling this to enable him to buy a smaller, lighter one.
For information about it I emailed and had a reply from the Director of theCivic Museum AccordionStradella in Italy. Below is the reply which has been translated with Google translate. As you can see from the email they value such a model in perfect condition between 800 and 1000 euros. The one I am selling isn't perfect but it is in very good condition as you can see from the photos.
If you would like to come to view it please email me. Collection in person would be best however, I will post it via Parcel
For International postage costs please email me.
If collecting - it can either be collected from myself near Keighley, West
Yorkshire or by prior arrangement from either my place of work in Manchester or
my father's in Burnley, Lancashire.

The evaluation venal the instrument may vary from country to country. In Italy, the evaluation is in practice determined by collecting, and his instrument would be evaluated 800-1000 euro,
given the perfect condition and complete
with all its parts.
