HMV Model 102 Advert
"THE WORLD'S FINEST PORTABLE"

(HMV's description of this Gramophone -There was no Advertising Standards Agency in the 1930's).


HMV portable Gramophones were normally black. Coloured portables are rare, the original purchase price was 6 compared with 5.60 for the black model. Only 40p difference, but when you consider weekly wages of 2 or 3 per week, it was only the wealthy who would pay extra for a coloured model.
Red and Blue were the most popular of the coloured Portables, followed by the Green.
Coloured HMV Portables are sought after by Collectors.

This Gramophone has a 5A Soundbox (where the needle goes in), green turntable 270D motor and is in excellent original condition.
