Chemnitzer and bandoneon are both concertinas. Hard to tell what the layout is from a picture, though.

The description says 16 bass, 22 treble buttons, so it sounds more like a bandonika.  The case is the same as a german concertina or bandonion, but buttons are arranged as on a melodeon.

Reasonable price at approx £360 - roughly 10 Kr to the pound.
