Superb Vintage Original HMV Portable Wind Up Gramophone Record Player 97C Green
A fantastic vintage portable Gramophone manufactured by HMV in the late 1930s. It is in a rare green colour complete with matching record holder tray. I’ve played a few records on it and it appears to be in good working order, producing a very pleasing sound. It is in excellent condition and I’d find it hard to believe its ever been used. The arm and turntable move freely and the plating is bright and clean. It has the original side-wind handle and has an automated stop/start brake plus a manual brake. It includes single handed lid operation and a pivoted needle bowl. In the corner of the player. It even comes with its original paper instruction card which “must be delivered with the instrument to the user”, which is in excellent condition. Below the turntable is a plaque which reads. Reference to this Instrument. The B/3 dates it’s manufacture to 1939 as this date system started in 1936 and the 3 means 3 years on, thus 1939. The green case is in superb condition. It has its original carrying handle and the plating is bright. It even comes with its original working key with its original cloth’key’ label. There are some very minor signs of wear here and there and some slight tarnishing on the plating but nothing detrimental and overall the player displays beautifully. Width : 11 1/2 (29cm). Diameter of Turntable : 9 1/2. Overall a truly stunning and rare piece for the collector. The best description I can give comes from the photos so please look at them all carefully and if you have any questions please ask.
