Hi Rachel,

Welcome to the forum.

The logo is Weltmeister, and your accordion would have been made before 1989, when the GDR or DDR ceased to exist. 

Sorry I dont know very much about Weltmeister accordions at all. Some members are bound to have better knowledge than I have. 

I also dont know what period the logo would have come from, although Ive seen them currently for sale, with the adhesive backing still on them.

This Badge can be found on Accordions made in the former GDR 1949 to 1990
Made by Weltmeister and appeared on their Models of "Weltmeister" , "World Master" & "Royal Standard".

Thanks Jim,

I forgot it took almost a full year from demolition of the Berlin Wall until unification of what were the "two Germanies".

The official date was 3rd October 1990, so your time period will be spot on. I should have looked it up.

Don't think I've ever seen any of the Weltmeister models available in the UK close up, so the names of the models are well outside my experience.
