Condition Report For Lot# 564 :
Mechanism is complete and operates, but sluggish and could use oiling. Bedplate has loss of black paint, but retains some original stenciling. Oak case has been nicely refinished and in good condition. Front wood grill has is a nicely made copy (with the addition of a center horizontal stretcher which the originals didn't have, but actually an improvement as it strengthens the long vertical grill bars which often got broken): Diamond needle reproducer is in good condition. Has original winding crank. Interior Edison decal is a replacement. An "as found" photo is included.
