Hungarian scoring machine for foil and epee disguised as a telephone. This curious piece is from the collection of material donated to the Archive by Maestro Ferenc Marki’s family. It appears to be a working scoring device although I haven’t attempted to plug it in, nor am I likely to. When it was made or by whom is unknown. If it was made as a gag, it certainly seems to have been thoroughly done. It didn’t come with a handset. I wonder if that functioned as the buzzer? It may also have buzzers built in. I won’t take it apart to find out; it’s too cool just as it is.
