After WW1 and in the 1920s there was a great demand for gramophones as a source of entertainment and to satisfy the dance craze that was booming. Probably the most popular portable gramophone at that time was the HMV Model 101. This is a
very well used and weather-beaten example from about 1926 and in a red case. It shows signs of much use, but also that it has been cared for over the period of over 90 years.
The gramophone has been fully serviced and a new carry handle has been fitted, together with a new mainspring that should keep it working for another 100 years! It works very well with a good No.4 sound-box that is free from damage due to “pot-metal” decay.
The gramophone comes with 100 needles and a small selection of 78s if required. Delivery with DPD (Next day) £25 and with Hermes £15.
