Vendex Co., Boston, MA, c. 1935, 12". This model is identical to the Vendex 520 Fish Bowl except for the globe, which on this is a jar and on the Fish Bowl is a fish bowl (go figure, huh?). I bought this machine at an auction while bottom-feeding. It was on my list as one I liked and figured if it went cheap enough I'd snag it and resell it at the next Chicagoland show. It went cheap enough, but when I brought it home and my wife saw it she squealed and said "Ewwwww, I like that!" Okay, maybe "squeal" is the wrong word to use there, but she did like it so it now sits on a shelf at home and won't be going to Chicago for the foreseeable future.
This example is 100% original.
