I just bought an accordion...?

This morning I bought an accordion from a flea market.
The brand is Excelsior. It has twenty-seven buttons on the side, and 15 keys.
I'm trying to learn about it, and figure out just what kind it is, because it seems fairly simplistic compared to the other accordions I've seen online and such.
Does anybody have any idea about anything about this accordion?

Accordions come in lots of different sizes, but you're probably seeing mostly full-size ones, which have 120 bass buttons. It's much better to learn on one with fewer bass buttons, since trying to find proper finger positions with 120 buttons is daunting. Some accordions have as few as 12 bass buttons, but yours sounds like the ideal size for a beginner, since you won't outgrow it as quickly as you would a really small model.

Excelsior makes great instruments and they're used by lots of professionals. The company started in New York in the 1920s and after World War II, an Italian factory was opened. If I'm not mistaken, all of the accordions have been built in Italy since that time.

Here's a link to the company's website:
