Functional design, entirely made of Bakelite with
a brown leather handle. The lid serves as turntable. The
phonograph is equipped with an electric synchronous motor. This
type of motor has to be "helped" by giving the turntable a little push with your finger. A
lamp, next to the arm, lights up the power is on.
A needle cup is also available.
The connecting wires are stored under a cardboard
lid below the unit.
The electromagnetic sound box (needle pressure 160 g) is equipped
with a removable steel needle. The needle is kept in place by a magnet.
In advertising the device was called "Porteldisc";
its nickname is "Hat Box".
The Porteldiscs were first introduced at the 44th
Jaarbeurs Spring Fair in Utrecht (March 11-20, 1941).
The original price was f 52.50.
