Wurlitzer Jukebox Model 1080 , "the Colonial," Vintage/antique Circa 1947-rare:

Up for sale is an original 1947 Wurlitzer Jukebox, Model 1080- deemed "The Colonial" by Wurlitzer and nicknamed the "Mae West" in pop culture, because of its beautiful distinctive curves. This is a beautiful piece, and has only had two owners. It was purchased by a country club in South Florida in 1947 and privately sold to a collector in 1985. The current owner has decided to thin out her collection, and we are excited to present this Wurlitzer back to the the collectors market. The Wurlitzer works just as beautifully as it looks and you can check out the following link to see it play and for more detailed close ups. * We have lots of pictures, so if you'd like to see more pictures and closer detail, please email us and we'll be glad to send them to you. The Wurlitzer has been professionally cleaned and serviced by the same specialist since 1985, and he's been working on jukebox's since 1946 here in South Florida. Earlier this week we had him clean and service the box- the service included changing some burned out bulbs and tubes, and replacing the power cord with a new model-specific replacement cord. As you can see in the video and photos, this Wurlitzer is an iconic beauty, and it is as much a piece of art deco art as it is a sweet sounding jukebox. More on the Model 1080, "The Colonial: "Although this 1947-1948 model contained all the mechanical refinements of the earlier Model 1015, its less dazzling appearance made it an appropriate choice for relatively conservative locations. Wurlitzer sold 7,604 of this box, known as the Colonial, advising that “Its graceful colonial styled cabinet is a period master piece rich in old world charm. Its illuminated mirror plastics have the glow and sparkle of fine cut glass. An early American lyre inspired its colorful grille. Its visible record changer reproduces a famous 18th century painting.”’
