    I can identify it as an "accordion."

    The bass buttons on a piano accordion are almost always Stradella. The only thing that usually changes is the number of buttons. How many buttons does it have?

    I highly recommend these posters to anyone interested in accordions: Click image for larger version

      It has 48 bass buttons.

    Okay, that's a standard Stradella configuration, but there are two different 48-button standards. You either have 8 or 12 fundamentals. With 8 you also get counterbass, major chord, minor chord, major seventh chord, and diminished chord. With 12, I don't recall the configuration; but I think it's the same but without the seventh and diminished. The former is more common in my experience.

    The fundamentals from left to right run clockwise round the circle of fifths. There should be one with a dimple or rhinestone, which is C.

          Let me guess: the button with the slight dent is "C"? Looks like the standard "8 fundamental" Stradella bass section.
