1925 Deforest Ls-400 Radio Cone Speaker * Near Mint, Working & Very Rare :
Make sure to check out all of my sales after you've looked at this one. I'm listing an outstanding assortment of museum quality musical, medical, technological and mechanical antiques, and I suspect that there will be something of interest to almost everyone.
Here's a gorgeous, working 1925 DeForest LS-400 loudspeaker with its original adjustable driver. This scarce speaker -- one of the most beautiful cones ever made, by any manufacturer -- was meticulously restored by Buford and Jane Chidester, authors of Classic Cones (the cone speaker bible), and the original die cut paper cone was replaced with one identical in size, design and construction. The cloth-covered driver cord was also replaced with one essentially identical to the original (Buford and Jane makes these cords themselves, by hand). As you can see in the photographs, the speaker is in extraordinary condition throughout -- pretty much dead mint -- and the original Deforest tag is nearly perfect.
If you're looking for the cleanest example of this cone that you're ever likely to ever encounter, I think you've just found it.
The speaker measures approximately 14" high by 12" wide by 5" deep. Shipping weight will be approximately 14 lb.I'll pack very carefully, and the speaker will arrive at your home in the samefine condition in whichit 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. Buyer prepays and includes shipping.
