Vintage 1926 Baker-Smith Jodra "Enchanter" Ship Design Radio Cone Metal Speaker
Vintage 1926Baker-Smith/Jodra Mfg. Co. "Enchanter" Ship Design Radio Cone Metal Speaker.
Up for offers is a 1926 radio cone speaker in a brightly colored pirate ship motif housed in an aluminum frame.
First introducedin November 1926, "The Enchanter" cone speaker was manufactured by Jodra Mfg. of Seattle, WA. but advertised and distributed by the Baker-Smith Co. of San Francisco. Research indicates this particuar speaker when first advertised did not have a model number but was so popular it was carried over to the following model year and by June 1927 it had been named the model "G".
This four colored beauty measures 13 inches in diameter and is 16 inches tall. The cast aluminum frame is in excellent condition with no cracks or structural issues. While it retains most of its original paper cone, it is not in good condition andshould be replaced. Happily excellent reconing is available for speakers of this type.
The speaker driver is good with a DC impedance of about 1035 ohms. The original felt bottom is original and untouched. The originalcloth covered lineis ingreat physical condition butdoes not show continuity. It should be inspected and possibly replaced.
The four color hand painted pirate ship and baseare both in overall good condition and completely original.
