The crocodile skin covering is most unusual and makes this machine really stand out. Coming from an age where most other portables were a standard black or blue, this is a rare and beautiful vintage gramophone.
Features interesting flip top needle storage container, which contains a number of new replacemant needles.
With its original wind up crank handle and built in record storage this fantastic portable player can be taken anywhere - to a party, down to the beach or even to the outback! No power or batteries required so it is completely portable and versitile.
Runs very well, and happily plays a full recording without the need to rewind.

It will be on display in our shop in Glen Iris, Melbourne during the auction.
As can be seen in the illustrations below, this beautiful old phonograph is complete and in remarkably good condition for it's age. The motor runs well will play a complete side of a record without the need to rewind. The chrome work is generally in good order although there are some minor areas of corrosion in places. The gramophone works really well and plays with a clear crisp sound from the internal horn. The unique leatherette covered case is also in very good order and presents very well. The leather handle has some minor damage but overall in good shape.
You may never see another one quite like it, so don't miss out on the chance to make it yours.
