Listing for:
Victor Victrola Portable - the VV-50


It looks like a suitcase, but this package contains one of the nicest portable phonographs made!

 


This example has an all-original case and mechanism, including the turntable felt! The motor has been rebuilt and runs very well!

 


The case from the top - nice mahogany. The band is a reflection.

 


The underside of the lid doubles for crank storage - ingenious!

 


View of the top.

 


The ID tag - an early, four digit serial number. This example is from the first run of machines!

The VV-50 was a very popular phonograph that plays your records whenever you want to hear them, wherever you happen to be. Indeed, during the late 'teens and early 'twenties, automobile and train travel were the means to get around, and this machine was designed for such outings. The motor runs strongly and the playback is crisp and loud through the Victrola reproducer. Unlike many similar portables, this machine was built to last, with wood construction, steel corner protectors, and iron, brass, and steel mechanics - no pot metal parts to swell and break on this one! Comes complete with records and needles. Ships from our San Francisco location.
