Has anyone seen these register names ever? I have not and I'm very curious to find their equivalents (Violino is an easy one of course). Accordion brand is "La Conero, Sirolo Italy" and I've found on the web that La Conero manufactured accordions from 1944 until 1955...

Art,
The designations are in Italian.
Tromba means trumpet, violon- cello is cello, the rest are obvious.
As to what reed combinations they represent, I've no idea🤔

You are correct Dingo; I've never seen such denomination of voices, I guess one of them is the equivalent of master and maybe another one is clarinet, another one bassoon and yet another one bandoneon, but it is only a guess. It looks like an ancient instrument from when the more current denominations that we know was still not used.
