What you have is typical of the 1000's of 12 bass accordions made in the early 50's to the early 60's in Italy by many different firms for import. During this period of time in the US these 12 bass boxes were used as rental accordions for a 90 day period, and after that the box would be returned and then a student model accordion of from 48 to 120 basses would have to be purchased. They appeared with many different names and some with no nameplates at all. From the parts I see on your Pic' I would take a guess as made by Gabbanelli.
