    Philips Electronics has played a pivotal and innovative role in the evolution of modern technology. They were founded in 1891 in the Netherlands by Gerard Philips who was a cousin of Karl Marx. The mikrofon offered today is one of their earliest, probably dating to the early 1930's. This is a vintage carbon or kohle mic model No. 4225.

    It is in excellent condition.  The chrome is lustrous and borders on mint. The ring stand is not original but it displays optimally. The function of this item is not assessed, although an identical one just sold and the seller was able to get it to work.

    I feel that the 4225 would compliment a collection nicely, especially one with a European emphasis.
