I'd be interested to hear from anyone else who has knowledge of this maker. Here is some history, in German:

Here's an interesting television show/tell/appraisal of a Rauner Princess miniature club. A beautiful little box with some features like a Preciosa (pearl buttons) and some like a Liliput (A-frame reedblocks) and other features like neither (7-button inner row).

A simpler model of "Princess" (closer to a Hohner Liliput, but with pearl buttons and not actually  labeled as a Rauner, nor as a Hohner) was sold ebay in the US recently. I think this was probably also made by Rauner:

(I'll add some photos from that auction later, because the auction listing itself will eventually expire)

triskel has discussed Rauner on this forum:,20893.msg251115.html#msg251115,1294.msg202538.html#msg202538

Maybe someone else has one, or knows more?

Thanks if you have information, photos, etc to share!

Yer man in the TV show got a nice deal for €70! The presenter says the business was "nationalized" after WWII, but Wikipedia has it that the owners had it taken away as the result of a plebiscite about the expropriation without compensation of Nazi criminals or war criminals... :o

Edited to add: thinking about it overnight, I realised that of course this all happened in the DDR (East Germany) and I would have liked to know more about that plebiscite, and how expropriations of that kind were carried out, and how justified they were.

Interested to follow this thread. A few years ago I was trolling German Google and Bing domains for accordion pictures and came across quite a few Rauner models that looked interesting.
