That looks like a 1930s model hohner, the one with bakelite buttons, and reversable knobs. They only ever shipped them to australia apparently. Left handed too

I tried it that way 26 years ago, and have continued to do so ever since, works much better. No need for clothes pegs to hold the stops out either, just let gravity do the job.

Are we talking about the melodeon or the lady?
