VERY OLD WORKING PORTABLE GRAMOPHONE

brand

ARM LABELLED B.T.H

How Old?

1920'S/30'S

Condition

the Gramophone itself is in working order as you can see from video below, the box is missing its lid but this doesnt stop the function of the gramophone. Its winding mechanism seem fine and the start and stop sitches/levers work as they should. The speed option lever is in full working order as well, you can see this being used in the video below. The handle and the winding crank are a little rusty but im sure they could be cleaned, the gramophone was pulled out of storage, had a little wipe over, a 78 placed on it and with a winding up... it played music, its amazing and i feel with a good cleaning and reconditioning it could be a lovely peice,its a great collectors peice and very very rare to find one in working condition!
