An absolutely stunning and rare vintage cash till, made by the National Cash Register Co in the US in the early 1900s. The brass and copper tones are showing beautiful ageing, giving a lovely warm patina. The keys are all original and still intact and working. On pressing the shillings and pence keys, the cash draw will fly open (similar to the till in 'Open All Hours' for those of you old enough to remember!). The price keys in the display window will also pop up but will drop down again after the key is released. This 100 year old cash register is made from solid brass and then copper oxidized, making it extremely heavy to put off would be thieves. The marble ledge above the till drawer was used to tap coins to check for forgeries, which would have a different sound to genuine currency.
Model number is 349, serial number 925986
This is an amazing piece of history and makes a great investment as these are rare and will only increase in value. The register is not only a beautiful piece that would look fab in a bar, pub, cafe or restaurant but would also look great in an eclectic home.
