FS: Very Rare 1938 Western Electric/Jensen Acoustic Horn.


Recommended Posts

Item: 1938 Western Electric/Jensen Acoustic Horn.

Location: Mornington, Vic.
Price: $750
Item Condition: Excellent
Reason for selling: Don't know if I will find a second one.
Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, COD Only

 

This is one for the serious collectors.

 

Its the horn from a 1938 Jensen XF-101 Field Coil Driver (Which was essentially the same as Western Electric at that time - corresponding WE model SE - 7015).

 

Absolute rarity and seriously collectible piece. 

 

Beautifully made and engineered and in virtually pristine condition.

 

These pretty much just don't come up for sale anywhere in the world, so a unique opportunity for someone to secure this for their collection or as an investment.

Actually Cecil B. DeMille contacted @@djb and enquired through a pre-recorded message via a horn speaker such as this is if he'd be happy to play the Frank Thring role in a later edition of a movie he was planning.

I had something like this in mind for @@djb

I remember and loved Frank Thring

Great role in King Of Kings

Frank was an icon.

 

A Melbourne icon (at the time I knew him) for those in the know.

I learnt how to dismiss a waiter politely from him after a session at the 'Love Machine' in Toorak in the nascent 70's. Also learnt just what an excoriating language English can be in the hands of a master. :)  even when fuelled with a few sherbets.

 

These days we don't have waiters, so I don't pay them the same kind of respect. A good sommelier on the other hand...

Apols to OP for topic drift.

 

I should know better. I do know better. :(

 

Good luck with your sale.

If I had the other one I'd have this :)
