This "Vintage" phonograph is actually just a few years from being an antique, as it was made in the 1920's by The General Phonograph Mfg. Co. of Elyria, Ohio (1919-1926). These miniature versions of the phonographs of the day were made for the children as toys they could learn from. This "Baby Cabinet" as it was labeled, was made of wood (with the interlocking joints) and metal (the front decorative grill and door), and has the original stenciled nursery rhyme figures applied on the front door (Humpty Dumpty) and both sides (Mother Goose and Tom Thumb). This charming phonograph has its' original finish and parts; the wood handled crank, on/off lever, turntable, and tone arm all work well. In addition, it comes with an assortment of 5 records including "Everybody Loves My Baby" and "Three Blind Mice" which is a very rare one-sided record dated 1908/09. The dimensions for the phonograph are 17 1/2" in height, 9" in width, and 10" in depth. What a wonderful piece for the collector or "just for fun"!
