    There is only 1 item left in stock.
    This is a 1950s Child's Round Paper Accordion made in China.  On one end there is an illustration of a pink elephant holding up a harmonica in its trunk before a bamboo forest.  On the other end there is a smiling seated baby doll with a bright pink face, dressed in a blue and white fuzzy snowsuit with a red bow.  Each of these 3.75" round ends has a laminated wood base and looped green ribbon pulls.  One end has three holes surrounded by red grommets which produce the sound.  The paper bellows are made from a thick paper with pink and purple flowers on a red-orange and white geometric background.  Two other decorative papers (one with butterflies and one with toys) has been glued to the inside of the ends.  The blue plastic edging has slipped on to the bellows and hardened over time.  The accordion makes noise as if new.  One side is marked: "Made in China" (with Chinese characters) and "UC 613" (probably the model number).  This 1950s Child's Round Paper Accordion is in Very Good condition with minor wear due to age.
