Item Type: Trophies - non-ICA
Full Description: A framed and cast-metal German “Konzertina” Trophy, dated 1929 and embellished with an appliqué raised brass model of a bandoneon-style concertina. All in a 218 x 325mm black-wood frame. The large circular central cartouche is engraved “Dem bruderverein venus z 25 jahr jubilaum gest v Konzerrina-Verein Fortschritt 1929”, which Google tells us might mean: “The brother agreed venus 25 year anniversary Concertina Club Progress 1929” – probably the 25th Celebration of this Bandoneon-players’ Club!
