Sonola Rivoli R241 Accordion

This is a Sonola Rivoli R241 accordion. This particular example, serial number 21941, is in very nice vintage cosmetic condition, and includes the original hard shell case.

This particular accordion looks stunning. The 41 mother of pearl treble keys work great and don’t stick, although some barely visible residue on the keys is left from possible note markings. The bellows feature an attractive design and seems to work well. Of the 120 bass buttons, only about 20 of them are functional. The others have been stuck from reeds catching on each other. Since I am not an accordion repairman, I will leave it up to the buyer to fix this easy issue. The Rivoli features three (3) treble switches, Master, Bassoon, and Clarinet, and one (1) Bass switch.

Included in this auction is the original hard shell case which is in very nice condition, with no issues, cracks, odors, and the latches work perfectly. Also included is the original leather strap and some accordion song books.
