eBay watch: 1960s Phono Boy 7-inch portable record player by Dario and Mario Bellini

Phono

Also known as the Minerva after the company that made them, the Phono Boy 7-inch portable record player by Dario and Mario Bellini actually made its name when Grundig started selling them. But this is one of the original Italian models.

A very hip vintage item from 1968 and a useful one too. Slip in a 45 and you get to play singles, which is useful at record fairs, charity shops, car boots and the like.

According to the seller, it is n 'excellent vintage' condition, with one or two very small marks. Battery-powered, so no worries about changing the electrics. £30.53 is the price right now.
