Very few have survived in this all original, undamaged highly collectible condition. The Catalin surface is in mint condition without cracks or missing pieces/the nickelplated metal parts without corrosion. Even the original rubberized covered wire with conical plug is still there, and everything works! A very unique design with typical geometrical Art Deco style elements: sleek louvres wrapped around the housing, can be either screwed on a stand or stand by itself by unfolding the nickelplated incorporated stand on the back. This extravagant microphone is featured in several important collecting books & museums all over the world, a great clean example from the Machine Age era. It’ s just impossible to capture the true beauty in just pictures, you will see that this gorgeous microphone is so much nicer in real.
