Coin operated machine. For a mere nickel, see “Artists & Models in the Third Dimension.” This is the way they hid “cheesecake,” hiding it behind the common use of nude “artist’s models.” The top portion is the advertising, with an almost nude glamorous blonde, framed and under glass. Next, is the top of the box: look in the bakelite viewer and choose from artist’s models: the Morning Bath, Charm Girls of the Ice Follies, and Queen of the Burlesque. Turn the Bakelite knob to start the films once you have put the coin into the slot. Machine lights up and starts to whirl! Inside, still, are the 3 old celluloid films. See Gypsy Rose Lee and others stripping, breasts bare! Although original film is included, it may not be viewed on this machine. Reel is broken. High art deco, mostly wood, and measures 25” high.
