Circa 1915 Wooden Mutoscope Cabinet - "Thrills"

Starting Bid - $800.00, Sold For - $1,624.00

Circa 1915 mutoscope offers the customer "Thrills" in the form of a short "risque" movie.

Offered here in this machine is one such vintage reel from the era featuring a woman performing a striptease dance. The machine, featuring an ornate wooden cabinet, is in working order and all of the parts are original with the exception of the top marquee, which is a modern reproduction. Dimensions: 18 (W) x 19.5 (D) x 72 (H) inches. Please Note: due to the size and/or weight of this lot, shipping charges may be substantial. Reserve $800. Estimate $1,500/$2,500. SOLD FOR $1,624.00
