And it is an eye catcher!!!! When I got it home and got it unloaded I had to play with it some and plugged it in. The switch on the right turns on the roaster. When I turned it on I can hear something but did not investigate what it did. The light in the glass area comes on and has to be plugged in to a separate cord and it works.
I do not know how the rest of it works. I have only seen these in books and have never actually ever touched one.
I just know that it is a show stopper!!! The wheels seem to be all intact. There is no cracks in the glass. Just a neat old piece of carnival history.
Can you imagine going down town and smell the popcorn and the nuts roasting as a child??? This must have been something to see back then and still is!! I will not box this item. They said it would not be a problem that they would be glad to do it. You can have up to 6 months free storage to pick it up.
