These circular machines have been seen in walnut, mahogany and Chinese Chippendale finishes. Tabletop Modernolas have been reported.
The Modernola Company turns up in the Johnstown business directory as late as 1923.
Like many other struggling phonograph companies in the 1920s Modernola also began to offer radios.
The interior of this Modernola featured distinctive red cardboard drawers.
The Modernolette, a picnic portable sold by Modernola, did not contain a light.
