An icon of German post-war design and a desideratum for everyone, back then: the SK 55 by BRAUN, the so-called Snow White coffin, was in great demand in the 1950s and 1960s and also quite a bestseller.

Our specimen is clean, has been preserved in its original form and plays within its capabilities.
