Disc player. Also referred to as a "camera-phone" because of its resemblance to box cameras of the day, the device was manufactured in Great Britain between 1924 and 1930. All necessary parts are included and housed within. Player has been tested and works but there is a persistent clicking sound once the turntable gets up to speed. Measures approximately 4 3/4" in width, 6" in height and 7" deep. Some degradation to the leather wrap on the case. The handle on top of the case appears most fragile.
