Original, self winding Western Union stock ticker. Designed by Thomas Edison, the stock ticker was his company’s very first commercial success and the profits derived therefrom directly funded his celebrated Menlo Park Lab in New Jersey from which sprung so many inventions that still touch our lives a century later. This iconic, supremely collectible piece is instantly recognizable even though it hasn't been in service since the first half of the 20th century. They are increasingly difficult to find and this one is in exceptional condition with its domed glass top.
