1940s Wax Cylinder Dictaphone

A precursor to magnetic tape, the wax cylinders accompanying this late model Dictaphone were used for recording and playing back a low quality but audible sound, most often the voice of an administrator or secretary in an office setting. This particular model was in production in the early 1940s.

Egyptian Revival

This is a stunning Egyptian revival set from the 1930′s. It is amazing to me that it is still together after all these years. The scarabs are a beautiful blue milky glass (with no chips) and the metal is a type of silver chrome. The bracelet can be easily converted into a necklace. The ring is adjustable. The set itself is of quality and is quite lovely in person. $175.
