Product Description

A superb original cash register…

Although we are unsure of the actual age of this piece, we believe that it dates to the earlier part of the 20th century, circa 1930s. This could act as a cool display piece or a personal keep sake box in one’s home. Made in steel with a glass fascia, the register is ‘weighty’ and strong. This piece works to an extent, but it is being sold primarily as a display piece or as a prop

Simply lift the metal lid in the middle of the register to reveal a small lever on the right hand side. Once pushed, the cash drawer underneath opens, as expected. To close the drawer, one simply pushes the draw back in place, and then pushes the lever back in its original position. This therefore locks the register back in place. It’s obviously not the original way the piece would have operated, but it is a working method! Also, when one pushes the numbers, they don’t all work as they should. Some do, some don’t…

We are offering this piece in ‘as found’ condition, therefore there is natural wear and tear. There are some surface scuffs and abrasions across the register along with some paint chipping and tatty areas. It is generally clean and tidy, yet notably the glass fascia is missing from the reverse of the register. This isn’t detrimental to the overall function of the piece, and of course the look and feel. We feel the current condition simply adds to its charm and authenticity. Please do study the photos to help with your analysis as it would be hard to highlight all imperfections…
