An original vending machine for Hot Nuts with authentic patina, circa mid part of the 20th century…

SKU: RC0328.

Product Description

A cool surviving vending machine…

Although we are unsure of the exact age of this piece, we believe it could date to the mid part of the 20th century, circa mid 1940s. Although the vending machine has seen better days, we love the fact that it exists and that it offers a decorative dimensions to ones home or a retail environment. It’s certainly an original piece with an authentic patina

Offered for restoration or for display, the vending machine is relatively heavy, probably made in a thick steel (but could be cast iron). The thick glass globe is complemented by its original Orange decals, and one can probably see the attrition around the steel base, which for us adds charm and authenticity. We actually haven’t touched this piece since discovering it, so a good deep clean may takeaway some of the White residue…

We are offering this piece in ‘as found’ condition, therefore there is natural wear and tear. The vending machine is good structurally, with surface scuffs and abrasions, paint chipping, loss to the original decals and generally tatty in areas. The one notable imperfection is the small loss of glass to the bottom front of the globe (which isn’t actually noticeable until close up). Although this is a real shame, the loss isn’t detrimental to the structure or indeed the look and feel. Please do study the photos to help with your analysis as it would be hard to highlight all imperfections…
