Not just a Holcomb & Hoke . . .

. . . . A Holcomb and Hoke with the rare "Fountain of Corn"animation in the lower cabinet! Pity they don't have it operating.

The Standard Butter-Kist Popcorn Machine

Holcomb & Hoke Model No. 3F

Circa 1927

Original Cost: $1250.00

This gas-fired popper with attached peanut roaster still relies on electricity for mechanical operation and lighting. The optional "Fountain of Corn" in the lower cabinet utilizes a blower to keep the corn in constant motion.

post edited because I was incorrect.
