A neighbor has an older Union Tulle accordion and asked me if I knew anything about it. Things like age, where it was made and possibly who the player was. I did an Internet search for the maker, Union Tulle, and the person w/ the name on the accordion, Janine Trauet, and came up empty. One reference to the accordion and nothing for the person. Can anyone here help?

From snooping via Google ... The village of Tulle seems to be a center of accordion building in France, with the "Union" company located in Tulle. The museum "Le Pôle de l'Accordéon" in Tulle has a collection of instruments, partly accessible online. Go to this URL:

http://mediatheque.cite-musique.fr/masc ... andeau.asp

and plug "Union" into the second field, "Facteur ou marque". This will bring up a list of Union accordions with photos. The instruments all seem to date from the 1950s.

The instrument in your photo is, of course, a chromatic button accordion. I don't know enough to tell by sight if it's a B-system or C-system.

Thank you for the link and information. I had told him I thought it was French made, but didn't know anything beyond that.
