A Wurlitzer "Victory" type 950 jukebox, Amercian, 1943,
fully restored 66 by 40 by 28in (168 by 102 by 71cm)
The ban of materials during the Second World War in the US made the production of jukeboxes difficult, ironically the demand for them increased. Wurlitzer's designer Paul Fuller came up with the solution of using an empty cabinet into which old mechanism could be used, and despite the limitations of material "Victory" still represented the luxury of Wurlitzer.
Paul Fuller's smart and distinguished design separated the "Victory" from other jukeboxes during the war and it helped keep the Wurlitzer name alive and paved the way for the company's post war success.
