Description
Record player, portable, "Peter Pan", patent No.195.801. Small wooden box with a hinged lid and leather carry handle on top. Inside the lid of the box is a clamp holding the winding handle of the record player. The assembly is as follows: There is a 4-pronged attachment that opens up to form a "turntable" and sits on a spindle. A double-angled arm holds the round head which, in turn, holds a pin. There are 2 pitch screws on the front. The lower one, just below the slot for the winding handle, acts as the STOP/START pitch. The other screw regulates the speed of the "turntable". The more you unscrew it, the faster the "turntable" spins. Still in working condition. Pin missing.
