I thought that this seems nice maybe with some nice history associated with it.

An interesting and unusual portable in nice condition, although I am not sure whether the soundbox is the original.

Unfortunately the seller does not offer postage. Posting a portable is not difficult (I have done it several times) and offering postage greatly increases the number of potential bidders.

You are correct, the soundbox for this one is a Salabert, with a little bird icon. I have a "de luxe" version that looks very much like the one above, it is a nice machine, see photos below. The button serves to open the needle drawer on the side, and the case is in a faux snakeskin pattern.

Never mind that, I love the stack of multi coloured portable gramophones in the background of photo 2 ! :o

That's part of my portable collection, you can see a blue 102. a red Russian imitation of the 102, a beige RCA Victor, a 102 in a custom-made mahogany case, a little part of a WWII olive machine, and the Salabert is sitting on top of a Victor 55.

Fantastic ! Thank you for going to the trouble of listing them. I appreciate it.
