This is from my doll collection that my mother had from the 1950's. My father bought many of these dolls in Spain for her. I do not know the maker on this doll - it appears to be either Roldan, Klumpe, or Nistis. The accordian has come unglued from one of his hands.

Mystery Solved

    Haha, not a simple accordion player, but a Tuno :) I guess the wikipedia can give you a more understandable definition of what a Tuno is:

    Well, it is an Accordian player after all, but the tuno things makes it sooooooo Spanish! :) By the way, tunos are now an "endangered species" even if some univeristies -such us Santiago and Salamanca- keep on promoting them... If you talk to anyone around or younger than 45 -my own age- they will surely loath them... even if they come from a centennary tradition!
