WOW!! Take a good long look at this BEAUTY! Seriously, go back and use the close up feature and really take a good look. Take your time, I'll wait here til you're through.......... when they say, "they don't make things like they used to" this is what they're talking about.

It's a BELL & HOWELL, FILMO "MASTER", 16MM, silent movie projector from the 1920's-30s era. Features a bronze color finish with accents. Includes the original owners manual, power cord, oil can, two take up reels and hard case. Everything except a movie to watch.

The motor runs fine in both forward and reverse. The fan works well and the lamp still works.

This baby was obviously always handled with care and stored when not in use because it looks as good as the day it was made! It will be PERFECT for vintage/antique decor. The storage case shows ordinary, very light scuffs on the exterior, but nothing serious or distracting. The maroon color, cordurory interior has one rip (easily seen in the photo) along the right side where the projector catches when you put it back in the box. The storage box has a small compartment for the oil can and an area for a spare bulb (empty - there is not a spare bulb) that can't be seen in the photos (underneath the projector).

This is the one you've been waiting on as the PERFECT accent piece
