This vintage wind up phonograph is cased within a rare piece of Heywood Wakefield antique wicker furniture. Although commonly called a ?Victrola,? (the copyrighted name of the Victor Talking Machine Company), the phonograph mechanism is actually a Perfektone and bears the Perfektone ID tag on the inside. Oddly, as seen in one photo, the head part of the arm says ?Victrola ? No 2.? Perhaps,(although I am no expert), it was a replacement made by a previous owner sometime over the past 90 years. Or Heywood Wakefield might have used some Victrola parts in making the original piece. It had patents throughout the world, with the last patent date listed as June 29, 1920 in the USA.
The piece measures 19-1/4? wide X 22-14?deep X 41? high. It weighs approximately 80 pounds. The mechanical parts are all working and it plays fine. The all natural wicker body has never been painted or altered from its original state and is in excellent condition, considering its age. A package of 100 extra soft tone needles are included with this piece.
We bought this item about 25 years ago from an antique dealer in New Jersey and have kept it in a smoke-free environment.
Because of its weight and bulkiness, we are offering it as "Pick-up Only." We are located in the Central Indiana - Indianapolis area.
