This extremely rare fortune teller, often referred to as "Esmeralda", has a unique feature in that she speaks your fortune, and does not deliver a card like most fortune teller machines. It is of unknown manufacture and this example has a fortune teller mannequin dressed in period clothing with wax head. The machine is driven by an Edison cylinder record player and one cylinder record is included. When you drop your coin, the Edison is engaged and plays your fortune through the external ear piece. Truly a unique fortune teller and in an earlier restoration. Complete and working, but needing adjustment to the Edison phonograph.

This is not a standard shippable item and will require 3rd party shipping or pickup arrangements to be made.

Condition: (Very Good).

Item Dimensions: 76 - 1/2" x 21 - 1/2" x 32".
