    Description

    "Voodoo Dance" Coin-Op Arcade Machine (c. 1930s). This antique "Voodoo Dance" musical machine was one of the most well-known coin-operated machines displayed in Ghost Town. (It can be seen in use on YouTube.) Inside the glass-topped cabinet there is a Merlin-like mystical character, a skeleton in a casket, two African-Americans playing banjo and drum, and a third dancing. The game has great "voodoo" graphics, and a very strange black and white photo of an ox in a bamboo field serves as a backdrop. This is one of the most talked-about lots in this auction. Measurements are 40" x 21" x 22". Sold "as is" with no implied warranty as to condition. The machine is in non-working condition, with no keys included. It's a stand-alone piece of beautiful folk art. Fair to Good condition.
