I like it. All closed up it resembles a Victrola 50 to some extent.

It must be hard to find one with a good decal when the crank lays right on top of it like that when closed or being transported. I guess you are lucky there too.

It's actually a lot like the early "Outing" portable from Mt Kisco NY. I'll have to post some comparison photos.
