Rarely seen in today's market, here's one of Bingophone's earlier model toy phonograph for children. Made in Germany during the 1920's by the largest toy manufacturer in the world, BING, this charming key-wind phonograph has delightful stencils depicting various nursery rhymes on the 6 panels. Also you can see the manufacturer's trademark and location (Bavaria); the company was located in Nuremburg which is located in the Bavarian section of Germany. The body of the phonograph is made of heavy enameled tin, while the turntable is metal with a sprayed on "felt" finish, and the original black horn is made of papier-mâché. Included are two of the Bingola records made by the Bing company; "Babes in Toyland" and "Washington Post March" on are one record, while "I Had a Little Doggie" and I Love Little Pussy" are on the other record. Both have their original paper sleeves marked "Bing-Wolf" the company selling Bing in the U.S.A. The phonograph is in good working condition for its' age and measures 10 1/2" in diameter and 4 1/2" in height. This is a great piece of phonograph history for the collector!
