Product description

Vintage gramophone-style horn from an early radio loudspeaker - plywood with metal frame
 
An original 1920s vintage gramophone-style horn from an early radio loudspeaker (probably by Graham Amplion Ltd, although a few other companies seem to have produced similar versions), comprising ten curved oak-veneered plywood "petals" mounted in a black painted metal frame with external screw thread fixing, by which it would originally have been attached to the speaker itself (which is no longer present).
 
Whilst this genuine early 20th century item shows assorted signs of age (see condition description below), it remains an interesting relic of the early days of wireless, and would make a quirky conversation piece - or could even, perhaps, be inventively repurposed in a vintage-inspired setting!
