Description

Height 33, depth 20, width 16.5. Has original label on back. Please see the image. The cabinet has been modified, the top does not open and the player isn't in it. I believe the cabinet is oak, there is a top piece, that covers what I think was the phonograph opening, which is just a stained piece of plywood It had been used as a telephone stand for at least 25 years up until around 1985. After that it has been used as a table next to the front door.

Provenance

It was a telephone stand in my father's cottage for as long as I remember --from at least 1960 through about 1985. After that I have used it as a table next to the front door.
