Offered at $995.-  Was $1295.- SOLD

A 1920’s full size Mahogany Victrola VV-XIa. It’s complete with the motor working well. The motor had been taken out and cleaned, including the motor springs. It plays very well. The motor governor has a missing counter weight, which means after winding it up, the turntable just needs a light push to get it going. The springs hold a fantastic amount of energy, giving this Victrola an excellent amount of playing time. Mechanically it will play records for a very longtime to come.

The mahogany case to this Victrola has an original finish, which shines nicely. It has normal wear, dings and scratches to the finish. The original lacquer fiinsh has some cracked areas, but this is to be expected of an old finish. It shows very nicely. The Victrola has been cleaned and waxed with a fine museum wax, giving it a fantastic shine! Definitely a very solid fully functional Victrola. The bright work is excellent and the nickel plating is exceptionally well preserved.

The Victrola comes with a 1927 music catalog, some needles and a few records. A very enjoyable piece!

Offering an original 1940’s Western Electric Telephone. It’s in very fine condition, with very few scratches to the handle or bakelite telephone base. The 1950’s cord going to the receiver has a few cracks in the wire covering. This does not affect the interior cord and the receiver works perfectly. Both the speaker and microphone are crisp and clear. The rotary dial is smooth and made of metal. The ringer is fantastic and reminds me of so many brilliant 1940’s movies.

I’m personally amazed at how nice the shine is and how little wear is present. The original four-prong plug is attached and can be plugged into the wall outlet with an $8.00 adapter from an electronics store. It could also be wired right into the wall outlet.

I’ve personally tested the phone by attaching the wires in the plug, to a phone outlet. All the functions work perfectly. Early telephones were meant to last forever and almost never break.

SOLD
