Antique Puritan Baby Vendor Slot Machine Gum Ball Trade Stimulator 1928 Lion Mfg For Sale

Antique Puritan Baby Vendor Slot Machine Gum Ball Trade Stimulator 1928 Lion Mfg

For your consideration, a late 1920's PURITAN BABY VENDOR GUM BALL TRADE STIMULATOR (SLOT MACHINE), manufactured in 1928 by the LION Manufacturing Company.
An all-original (to the best of our knowledge), unrestored machine complete with the original award card and original reel strip designating the fortune telling option of this machine. There are no visible breaks, cracks, chips or welds, and we have not attempted to clean or restore this cast aluminum base, other than dusting with a dry cloth. There are two sections that have glass and that is not cracked or chipped either, in front of the fruit reel and on the handle's side. It measures about 10 1/4 inches tall by 8 3.4 inches wide and is about 8 1/2 inches deep.
Although there is a key in the key slot, it does not turn; we cannot say that is this the proper key for this machine, it may have been put there for show. There is something inside that rattles around, possible two or three coins, maybe the key, without being able to open this, we aren't sure what is rolling around in there. Some original paint is still in place, the handle moves easily as does the gum ball retrieval slot in front and what I think is the gum ball filler trap door in the back. There is a tray on the bottom of the front that we think may have held a piece of glass at one time, a glass to hold gum balls for display, there is nothing there currently. Look closely at the photos, if you have any questions please ask before offerding.
Apparently, from what we have read, thefortune telling option & the gum ball options were offered to disguise the fact that these machines could actually used for gambling.

Oftentimes these machines were used in locations like stores, bars, etc., a place where the location operator could pay the winnings. It's a fortune machine, so if you lined up 3 bells or some cherries, the bartender wouldgiveyou some money - this was to circumvent the anti-gambling laws. The location operator could look in the small window below the handle & verify the coin played & pay out the award that the location operator would have placed probably on a small card adjacent to the machine, (this was to get around the anti-gambling laws at that time).

A great conversation piece or addition to your bar or lounge area. Restored to its 1920's beauty, it would add glitz and bling to your man cave.

Return: If you’re not satisfied with your purchase, we gladly accept returns, but item must be returned in its original condition. Shipping fees will not be refunded.

Please feel free to email with any questions and, again, thanks for looking!
