1940s Pin-up Mutoscope Card Dispenser

1940s Pin-up Mutoscope Card Dispenser

This is the best and rarest of the card machines of the 1940. It is absolutely spectacular. Insert a nickel and it dispenses an exhibit card with a glamorous girl painted by one of the "Big Six" pin-up artists of the era. The machine is a combination of reverse on glass painting and original art with printed sample cards by Gil Elvgren, Billy De Vorss and Zoe Mozert. Metal red painted plate in front reads "Victory De Luxe Post Card Vendor - Made in the USA by International Mutoscope Corp, Long Island City" with the patent number. Made of wood, glass and metal with an Art Deco style, front is a reverse on glass (15x15.5") and top has an original painting of an artist with a scantily clothed model with "Artist's Pin-up Girls" above. Machine is 43" high. The dispenser works: it lights up when is plugged in, but, alas, it's empty, no cards inside. Condition is EX-MT.
