Antique dictaphone from the early 20th century, first invented by Thomas Edison, designed to record dictation to wax cylinders to be later transcribed. This is a true relic and seems to be mostly intact, most obviously missing a horn that would be talked into which was once attached to the end of the silver tubing. Included is the wheeled stand and original power cord which hasn't been tested. A real piece of early electronic communication history and a fine conversation piece or home decor for the eclectic collector of curios.

Robust metal postal scale with rate chart from 1932. Used to set rates for various listed countries, this scale still functions. Calibration knob on the top allows for easy adjustments while the chart on the side shows rates to over 20 different countries all over the world. Originally the front piece would have had another chart but this is missing. Great charming antique. Approximately 8" tall x 7" long x 3.5" wide at the base.
