The Wurlitzer 1100 Jukebox was produced from 1947 to 1949. The look of the 1100 is indicative of the move away from 1940’s art deco design to the more modern look favored in the 1950’s. This was one of the first models where the glass dome over the record player is larger and can be opened up. The 1100 is a 24-selection jukebox that plays 78-RPM shellac records. Artists you can hear on records of the time are the great performers like Glenn Miller, Tommy Dorsey, Harry James and Judy Garland. The domed glass front allows you to watch the arm lift the record onto the turntable. As the jukebox plays, brilliant multi-colored lights rotate within the pilasters, creating an impressive light show. The extensive chrome reflects the lights as the jukebox plays.
