Rubbish Tuesday #38

Below is grandson's Hohner, given to him by his paternal grandfather, who is of German descent.
Hohner is a German company specializing in the manufacture of musical instruments. The company was founded in 1857 by Matthias Hohner (1833-1902). Hohner is identified especially with harmonicas and accordions. The Hohner company has invented and produced many different styles, and most of the harmonicas used by professionals. The company also makes kazoos, recorder flutes, melodicas, banjos, guitars, bass guitars, and ukeleles (under the brand name Lanikai). From the 1940s through 1990s, the company also manufactured various electric/electronic keyboards.

Thanks for stopping by. I hope you will join in the fun.

My idea was to have a place to post 'old things'. Anything old
and/or deteriorating such as, but not limited to, old houses, barns, outbuildings, old cars, rusty things, antiques, interesting junk, or it can be something in pristine condition, but just old. 

 
1. Link to a post featuring photos of something old.
2. Link back to Rubbish by Roan in your post.
3. As time allows, visit other participants and comment on their posts.

That is beautiful! What a wonderful heirloom that is. I have a post in draft about an old accordion my son found for me. I'll have to dig through the files and find it now. :-) Thanks for the linky. Hope you have a great week.

Lovely accordian - the colors are still so bright.

Is he taking lessons? Phil did, and he plays at church now. I will have to see if his accordion is this brand. I have never seen one looking like this, pretty and fancy.

A very nice accordion (that was my wish in childhood too)! We here in Germany know Hohner, of course.
Have a great week

Beautiful musical instrument with an important family connection. A great memory!

Halcyon said...

While I appreciate the history, I typically do not appreciate accordion music. :)

Sarah said...

How amazing, what a wonderful thing to have. My niece has recently taken up the Bassoon, not quite as unusual as this but still an instrument you rarely hear about.

Liz Needle said...

What a beautiful instrument. it is a work of art in itself.

Karen Schurr said...

What a great memory! Many of my family's friends and family played the accordion. Wow, so many fun memories.

Love the button box! What a lovely treasure to have in your family! A kind elderly gentleman gave my brother one--and my a keyboard accordion to me and each of my sisters, so we learned to play!

How wonderful and reminds me, I've got my Grandmothers old Hohner mouth organ and need to spend some time learning how to play it.

Rose said...

I hope nothing is wrong in your world...I keep checking and no post. I first assumed you were just really busy, but thought I would post a comment to see.
