Post subject:  Micro-Perophone radiogram on UK eBay.

In an attempt to move with the times, Micro-Perophone introduced this compact radiogram in about 1932, but the business did not survive WW2.

As well as the eBay offering (not mine) which requires a lot of work, I attach a picture of a restored example.

This is really interesting! I’d be tempted myself but for the fact it is too far to go get in these plague infested times,coupled with my inability to tinker effectively (and safely) with electrickery.

I hope someone makes a good show if restoring it - lovely design!

It finishes today and I'm almost surprised to see a bid on it at £100 - then again, it is a very unusual and attractive design, and the Simpsons motor is very desirable.

Let's hope that it will be restored, and not just cannibalised for the motor.

I hope whoever gets it retains the shaded finish. Looking at that "restored" one you can really see how much character has been lost.
