Radio works fine. Original owners manual included and in good condition. A definite conversation starter and beautiful antique. Pick up only!!
PLEASE NOTE: the turntable on this phonograph is not functioning and I do not know what it needs to repair. May be a slight adjustment or could need a part.?.? As stated above, the radio works just fine. There is also some wear on the bottom and top of the wood housing as would be expected with a unit of this vintage. I can email more detailed pics if interested. Thanks!
