Manufacturer plaque is missing but it is believed this piece is an Amberola 50 model (produced starting in 1915) cylinder player. Crank turns and mandrel spins but when the reproducer is placed, skipping and repeating of the cylinder is heard. Finish appears original with scratches, dings and slight cracks in veneer evident throughout (especially on the lid). Speaker mesh is a later replacement. Measures approximately 15" wide, 15" high and 20" deep. Not eligible for in-house shipping. Keywords: antique, antiquarian, music, recording
