Saw this at a local antique mall this morning. It appears to have once housed an early electric Columbia Viva-tonal phonograph and a Kolster radio receiver.

It's really a shame that all internals had been removed as it appears to be an early high-end radio/phono similar to a Brunswick Panatrope.

Yeah. It's a real shame that it's been gutted.

Around here acoustic Viva-tonal machines are pretty scarce but this is the closest that I've come to an electric Viva-tonal in 40+ years.
