1920's Wind Up Picnic Record Player


American Folk Artist

1920's wood box picnic record player with antique and vintage paper items decorating the interior (with 1930-50's pin-up girls and flowers) and exterior lid (with HUNGER that  asks for more than food is the theme and Victorian era cards and photographs dominate) in a stunning folk art fashion. 

Original crank that turns clockwise to wind the spring inside to play the record without power on the needle mounted speaker marked "Golden Sun" on the back.

As the spring winds down, the turntable will start to drag against a screw in the case, alerting you to another turn of the crank. 

Many replacement needles included in lidded chrome inset container. 

1 record included with Blame it on the Waltz, and In a Little Spanish Town on it. 

15.25" L x 11.75" W x 7.5" H

Check out a video of this playing a bit of Blame it on the Waltz on the Ruby + George blog!

George found this lovely object at a country estate auction, and he was sold as soon as the auctioneer play Blame it on the Waltz. George could picture he and Ruby on a picnic with this just as they had in another life in the Roaring 20's.
