Antique pieces have huge demand in Mysuru,” said Abdul Latheef, an antique dealer from Kerala. Latheef said he would return to Mysuru in December this year. Gayathri, a resident of Kuvempunagar, said she was delighted to own a gramophone. “It was my dream to buy a vintage gramophone. But as they are not easily available, I couldn't own one. Now I will showcase it on my home,” she said.
