Well, it sold for £ 231.

I hope someone on here got it so we can gain a bit more information about it.

SOMEWHERE on YouTube there is a video of this machine ... it's on one of those trendy lifestyle "you'll never believe the pretty thing that's inside this box" type of channel. I'm digging deep, but not finding it. It had tons of views ... from maybe a couple years ago, in the UK I'm pretty sure.

Yes thanks! That's what I was thinking of.

Here, too! I guess she obviously loves her picnic gramophone.

(Double-click the video above or click this link to watch the video on YouTube in HD.)

Thank you for the videos.
The picnic gramophone was delivered to a friend in the UK. No idea when I will next be able to travel internationally but at least it's safe and I am told it has already been used.
Some of the Bandalasta is marked with patent numbers and the gramophone looks like a generic Columbia with what looks like a Songster soundbox.
Here also is a link to an excellent Bandalasta website.
