Burns Pyralin Horn Speaker (1925)


Burns Pyralin Horn Speaker (1925)

THIS RADIO HAS BEEN SOLD!
Here's a beautiful, all-original Burns radio horn with an excellent, undamaged pyralin bell. The speaker was manufactured by the American Electric Co. in Chicago in 1925 and designed to be used with high end battery radios. Among the most beautiful and the most collectible of all 1920s horn speakers, Burns horns are also among the most fragile. If the speaker is not handled carefully, its leaves can crack and break, which is why you seldom find these speakers in acceptable condition, much less looking as nice as this one. The bell is perfectly formed and original throughout, with a beautiful sheen both inside and out. No missing pieces of pyralin, no cracks, no warps, no hairlines. All of the leaves are joined tightly at the seams. The paint on the elbow, base and driver housing is original, with very little wear. Not a repaint anywhere; polished with Novus 2. The speaker has been tested and still works great. It is ideally suited for any 1920's radio but is perhaps most often seen with early Atwater Kent breadboards. It is 21" tall, with a bell diameter of 12-1/2". Shipping weight, properly packed, will be approximately 25 lb.
