This is an ORIGINAL
WORKING Rola, 1925, “Re-Creator” ALL
METAL Signet Horn Speaker.
The Rola Company
started making horn speakers in 1923 in Seattle, WA.
A limited number were
produced in Seattle before they moved to
Oakland, CA in May of
1925 and in 1926 they moved again to Cleveland, Ohio.
This Speaker was made
in Oakland, CA (see picture of Rola Plate). They
Made speakers in
Oakland for LESS THAN 6 Months before they moved on.
There were VERY FEW
Made in OAKLAND.
“The origin of the name
Re-Creator used by Rola for their early speakers is
brought to light from
early “Radio News” ads which stated the horns were
Designed to Re-Create
all sounds exactly as the sounds were originated, hence “Re-Creator”.
This HORN SPEAKER is
ALL ORIGINAL, EVEN the FELT on the bottom. The
DRIVER HAS BEEN TESTED
& ADJUSTED & WORKS. It has the Original Cord,
with Metal Plug In
Tips, Original Nickel Plating & the Beautiful Crinkled Deep

All crinkle surfaces have been cleaned to enhance its Rich
Patina. Nickel has been
polished—is a Bright Silver Hue—it shows a yellow
Reflection from the
yellow cloth it was photographed on, but it is bright silver.
This signet style horn
was used by many manufactures including Atwater Kent.
