COLUMBIA DISC GRAPHOPHONE
Columbia put the other talking machine companies to shame when it came to style. They specialized in eye-catching decals and glossy flower horns. This "BN" Disc Graphophone is distinguished by its superb condition -- original cabinet finish and decal. The horn is, of course, original, and we have repainted it in thoroughly authentic style. Our resident artist has added plump, pretty cabbage roses, in keeping with the fashion of turn-of-the-twentieth-century talking machines.
The original decal -- Columbia's beautiful gold decals lent a singular charm.
All components are in fine condition. We have taken special care to skillfully rebuild and regulate the soundbox (needle head) to produce bright and brilliant music. The diaphragm is made of aluminum, which Columbia sometimes used after 1911 -- and we'd be surprised if you didn't find this to be the loudest and clearest antique talking machine you've ever heard!
The BN employs a smooth-running double spring motor.
Inside the cabinet, this label -- note the Spanish, Columbia exported large numbers of Disc Graphophones to South America during the 'teens.
Under the cabinet, this patent notice.
The Columbia Type BN Disc Graphophone -- a beautifully designed, and at an unbeatable price!
Price: $1650.00 plus s/h, (NY State residents must add tax if applicable).
