Case condition

This record player has been loved and used throughout its life! It has remained in the same family since it left the factory and the case is completely original. It was working perfectly when we received it. Time has given the wood a beautiful patina!
Le vernis a quelques signes de son âge avec quelques rayures très mineures / zones mates et la grille a de multiples éclats de peinture retouchés sur le devant (Regardez les photos). Il y avait une fissure sur la grille avant  au niveau du pied et une autre à gauche de la grille du haut-parleur. Elles ont été réparées de l’intérieur.
In one word, it's in perfect condition for its age!

Vinyl Turntable

The turntable is the rebuilt 1956 original Teppaz with a restored motor, new needle and cartridge, new original drive wheel. It can play 33, 45 and 78 rpm and accepts all sizes up to the 12 1/4 inch 78 rpm, the largest ever made. The cartridge is designed to read both tracks of a stereo record and combine them in one output signal. The swivel cartridge contains two universal sapphire needles and allows the playback of modern recordings.

History of the radio

This device is to record players what the SNR Excelsior 55 is to TSF radios: the rarest and the most sought after!

Océanic was founded in Paris in 1937 by Roger Toutain, they were able to produce only one model of radio before the outbreak of the war and did not resume the activity until 1949. In the early 1950s, Paris was the world capital of Art Deco design, and this was reflected in all elements of interior design. In 1953, Oceanic had the idea of developing Art Deco models on the theme of the sea, and the success was instantaneous, and the production continued until 1966. Then the brand started to produce televisions and the first 'flat' screens. These "sea" radios are now very sought after by collectors.

Oceanic named all its radios after 1953 with marine names and the Surcouf was no exception, named after the famous French pirate Robert Surcouf, who died in 1827.

Teppaz was founded in 1931, it was the first French brand to market a 78 rpm turntable in 1941, and remained the main turntable manufacturer until the 1970s. The brand specialized in portable record players, amplifiers, speakers and telephones. Teppaz was bought in 1988 by J-C. Sensamat, president of the company of the same name with the ambition to continue the audio lines of the brand. The company still exists, but seems to be limited to import-export, we have not found any reference to their audio systems.
