Vintage Rola 1925 Tube Radio Horn Speaker-atwater Kent For Sale
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
Black Luster Finish. 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.
Measures: 23 ¼” H X 14”Deep X 14 ¼” BELL DIA.—BASE 7 ¼” DIA.
