Hello, I have discovered this Tanzbar Player Concertina instrument in my Grandmother's attic. I found little information on this. I do not know how to play it although I found it does work. The unit consists of a concertina with reeds. The instrument is operated by perforated paper rolls measuring 4 3|8" wide. 15 rolls alltoghther. Measures 15X9X11" 38X23X28 cm. I would say the condition is fair. The box it came in is very fragle, as it sat in the attic for years. Still closes fine.
I am thinking it was made in 1920. Make with Walnut inlaid sections.
