1920's Victor Victrola Talking Machine VV-50.
For your consideration, we are offering this Victor Victrola Talking Machine. The model number is "VV-50" and the serial number is "113847". It's been tested and it works great. As you can see the wood housing shows some wear but it could easily be restored. Also, there are supposed to be 4 tiny nails that hold the Victor Plate to the inside lid but they are missing. It's attached temporarily with double sided tape. It measures 11 3/4" X 17 1/4" X 9" and it weighs 23.3 pounds.
When the Victrola sells, I will be taking it to UPS so they can professionally package it for shipping. So, at this point I don't know what the shipping cost will be.
The VV-50 was the first portable Victrola model to be produced. Production began in the summer of 1921, and was ceased in 1924, although the VV-50 remained in the Victor catalog during the following year, being sold from warehoused remaining stock. It used a simple single-spring motor, and a wooden case made of oak or mahogany, with steel protectors on each corner. Early production versions had the cranks in the front of the case, but these were later moved to the right side of the instrument. There were immensely popular instruments during the "Roaring Twenties", as they allowed people to take their music with them to parks, picnics or outdoor events.
