Here's a scarce, all-original RCA Westinghouse Vocarola horn speaker. First announced in late 1921, the Vocarola was RCA's attempt to round out its radio line with a loudspeaker, albeit an unwieldy one, whose design was based on automobile horn rather than a public address loudspeaker. The Vocarola was briefly marketed as part of a comprehesive RA/DA soup-to-nuts radio "package," but few of these packages were sold (the price tag was astronomical) and most RA/DA owners were content to use a more conventional Magnavox or Western Electric horn with their radio rig instead.The Vocarola is quite unique. It's made entirely of brass, and to distinguish it from the car horn that it so closely resembled, a black enamel finish was applied to its surface. The finish made for a more stately looking horn, but because it was painted directly onto the brass, without the benefit of a primer, it typically started peeling off within a few years, so most surviving examples of this speaker have considerable paint wear. Other than the obvious paint wear, the horn is in good condition throughout. There are very few dings, and the fine mesh grill is undamaged. The Baldwin speaker driver is original to the horn. The brass driver housing and the driver's mounting flange are also original to the horn. There is no back flange for wall mounting, and the Baldwin driver is open and will need to be re-wound if you wish to make the speaker operational.That's about it. I will pack the speaker with care, and I can assure you it will arrive at your house in the same superb condition in which it leaves mine. I have been shipping antique phonographs and radios for years, and if you check my response, you'll see that I know how to do it correctly. Overseas customers may remit payment with Paypal only. sale participants with no response history should contact me before placing a offer.
