1950's Seeburg Tear Drop Speaker:
This is a nice and in working condition 1950's Seeburg Tear Drop Speaker...It hasbeen in my collection for about 7 years...I have taken the pictures that I think give you the views and close-ups..necessary to determine the physical appearance condition...The speaker does work.....when youhook up your basic two speaker wires from your radio or phonograph or juke box if you have one.....to the twoconnections shown in close uppicture ( 11 ) ....In the picture that shows the rear cover... below the badly worn label is five screw connectors...Those are various ohm resistance combinations you could connect your two wires for speaker use ... if you were going to wire this speaker for its original intended use....when it was connected to a juke box ...and intended for sound some distance from the juke box speaker....However when you take the rear cover off , you will see on the back side of those five screw connectors the wires have been cut to about one inch long...A previous owner decided to cut the wires...and probably to make it easier to hook up your two speaker wires directly to the speaker..I assume...I tookthree close ups pictures that show the quality of the blue paint job.....When I purchased the speaker the color was a light faded and pealing green...I sanded the speaker and spray painted it blue ...When you take off the rear cover...you will see the over spray of that green on the inside of the speaker....You will also notice the original color ofa medium to darkbrown....which is the natural color of ..( bakelite) ..plastic, There was no original color to these speaker..they are bakelite plastic.....They were painted solid colors when putinto use...and more than likely to match the decor of where the speakers were placed...or the colors found in the model juke box the speakers were used with.....I have seen several different base colors on speakers up for sale over the years...There is a small amount of pitting on the chrome plastic ring surface ,and you can see it in the two close ups of the rings....not really noticeable from a distance...The speaker measures..( 16 in. tall--12in wide-- 6 in deep )..ThisSeeburg speaker was one of the many collectibles that has been on display here in the college's museum....( seen in the last picture )....at our small private Technical Career College in New Orleans....If you have any questions please ask here through ask the seller a question...What you see is what you will recieve you are the winner of this sale.Thank You for stopping to view mysale...and if you decide to offer ..Good Luck.....Nick
