Rock-Ola Manufacturing Corporation was a prominent jukebox manufacturer during the ‘Golden Age.’ Founded in 1927 by David Cullen Rockola, the American company was initially known for its coin-operated machines. The upcoming auction, offered by Leland Little, will present a Rock-Ola Tempo II jukebox manufactured in 1960. This Model 1478 jukebox remains popular for its car-like appearance with fins and a window screen. It holds forty 45 rpm records potentially belonging to an old Chapel Hill restaurant.
Another highlight is an Sp-10 HD stereo preamplifier from Audio Research Corporation, one of the oldest audio equipment manufacturers still in operation. The re-introduction of the vacuum tube as a primary device for amplification was a significant development from Audio Research. This 1928 preamplifier with vacuum tubes is among the top ten preamplifiers of history. Other vintage music accessories such as a ‘Vibro Champ’ guitar amplifier by Fender and a pair of JBL L166 loudspeakers are also featured.
From the selection of shotguns and rifles, a Civil War Colt Army percussion revolver with an 8-inch barrel is notable. Rounding out the sale is a selection of lamps, Federal and Chippendale-style furniture, Mary Frances handbags, Waterford glassware, and timepieces.
