Offered for consideration is one Ducati, Art Deco Microphone.  This was made by Ducati in the 1940's, prior to their specialization in motorcycles.  The item is quite heavy for it's size as it possesses a large dynamic element which alone weighs 1.65 pounds.   This model was designed for an intercom as evidenced by the multiple switches on the front.  They function properly as switches but the operation of the mikrofon itself could not be assessed or verified as there is no cabling.  The Bakelite housing is in excellent shape and still has its shine.  The capsule displayed in the pictures below is from an identical microfono as the present item was not disassembled.

In my experience, these mikrofoons are quite rare as not many were made and the Bakelite housing is quite fragile.  What contributes to the value of my mike is the almost pristine condition of the housing and the absence of chips or cracks.  This item will be packed carefully and as always, double boxed.  I actually have a few of these microphons, some of which will be offered in the future.  In addition I have extra elements and partial housings available.
