The radio works. It gets louder as it warms up. It has that old AM radio sound.
The turntable turns slowly and gains speed the longer it is on, but doesn't transmit sound from the record. There is sound from the turntable when it is on. It may be the needle cartridge. We don't know enough about them to help you much.
The cabinet looks good. If you are picky about finish, you would probably want to refinish it. If you like old for old's sake, you will be happy with it as is.

Shipping will be standard post unless other arrangements are made preceding the sale.
All sales final. Sold as is, as found.

This item was just as described. Everyone who I have shown it to is amazed by the the grooves worn into the wood from use and the craftsmanship of this washboard itself. It arrived in a timely manner. It is a beautiful and unique addition to my washboard collection. I am really pleased with it. Thank you.
Rare, primitive, handmade wood and wire washboard
