Fine Format's jukebox brooch perfectly captures a nostalgia from 1950s.
Pedlars has just taken delivery of this fully restored 1957 AMI ‘H’ Vinyl Jukebox and it is proudly on display at their concession in Selfridges on Oxford Street. So those of us who can not afford to buy it, can at least lust after in up close.
It is a classic 1950s design with an ‘automobile screen’ and lit pierced chrome ‘bumper’. It is a 200 selection model, playing both sides of 100 records. Although rare, this is not the first of these jukeboxes we’ve featured – we mentioned one back in 2007, that was on sale for £9,900. Pedlars want £16,500 for this one, concrete evidence of soaring inflation if ever I saw it.
If you have that sort of money to spare, you can buy it online at the Pedlars website.
If you no longer buy vinyl or can't afford the actual thing, you can attempt to capture the cool of an actual jukebox with this jukebox wall sticker. It's a very simplified outline of a Wurlitzer (with the company logo being replaced by the word 'juke box') in mono colour.
The sticker is made to order by a French company and comes in over 30 colours and, though much cheaper than an original model, is hardly a budget model. The smallest version for sale (150cm by 89cm) costs £98 while the largest version, at double that height, costs an additional £167,
