DECCA NURSERY GRAMOPHONE , 1950's

This portable gramophone was made for children in the 1950's, with nursery rhyme transfers painted by Dora Roderick,it plays 78rpm records.
It is very heavy but it was called a "portable", it needs to be wound up to make the turn table go round, when the sound arm is placed on top of a 78rpm record the sound that it makes is remarkably good.
