THE ONE AND ONLY Klingon Accordian

This is perhaps my favorite win of the June 2010 Profiles in History Auction. It is certainly among the most sentimental. This is the only Klingon musical instrument in existence to my knowledge, and is versatile in that it may also be used as a weapon!! Don't go taunting your local Klingon polka group or you might just get an accordian to the temple.

This prop, while non-functional, is a georgeous piece of prop-making. It is solid, painted with incredible luster and detail, and the bellows really do suck air and blow it out. I am quite fortunate to have gotten this, and will definitely cherish its presence.
