Anyone heard of a Pavo Real or Pavoreal button accordion?

I think they're South American. Anyway, someone was trying to onload a job lot of them on eBay and Gumtree a while ago, they looked like Club models, IIRC. I've noticed one on Gumtree within the past few weeks for relatively small money.
I've just remembered; someone in this country got them for converting to D/G but didn't actually manage all of them, and was selling them off. Maybe he got fed up, I don't know.

Pavo real is Spanish for "peacock", and (judging by this YouTube clip of a Pavo Real PA - akordeon pavo real) they appear to have been of 1950's East German manufacture.

As E. Jennings said there's one on Gumtree for £75

That one is in an earlier style and could even be pre-war, but still made in Saxony.

triskel will be correct, I have no doubt!
The South American connection came from (unless my memory is playing tricks on me) the advert where I first noticed them, 7 I think. I'm sure the seller (also the converter) said that he'd imported them from there, somewhere.

Highly likely - most of South America speaks Spanish, with the exception of Portuguese in Brazil, and the music in the clip I posted sounds decidedly South American to me...
