Victor brought a 3 Ring Circus to this prize vending machine set. These 3 separate vending machines rest on a base with a fabulous circus image. Each machine originally had 3 dimensional circus scenes in each, and a child could choose which circus act they were most excited by. Whatever was inside was taken out long ago, but if you can discover the items that belong there you can rebuild the circus. Each measures 10" wide x 11" x 25". The first two which take dimes are in working condition, but the third, which takes quarters, is not. No toys are included. The first one has some old pieces of foam inside. The fronts of the machines are brass and silver tone metal with raised lettering. The glass has green decorations, and a gold and green price label. The front image is in yellow, red, gray, brown and black, and has some light crazing and wear. Big playful circus animals are pictured, including a tight-rope walking lion. The great Victor name waves on a flag atop the circus tent in the background. The base is also wood, with groove joints, and measures 32" x 12" x 18". When all set up with machines on top, it will be 43" high. The wood is in good condition overall, with no bad staining or warping. The quarter machine has some cracking on the right side. The glass panel with the price is loose fitting because the wood around the opening is worn. The inside back of the front panel shows some staining.
Bring the excitement of the Big Top to your coin-op machine display, with this Victor 3 Ring vending spectacular!
