The speed control are operated by a lever at the back of the gramophone. The 2.5" turntable is covered in brown felt, and the record is secured by screw that closes the case. The leather carrying handle is intact and in sturdy condition. The Dimensions are 2" high, 11" long, and 4 and 3/4" wide. This phonograph is absolutely authentic and complete with all parts, The condition is exceptional. It was kept in the red felt bag (as seen with moth holes), but because of this it is perfect original condition. A real collectors piece.
