More information about the Victor II
This later version of the II had an enlarged oak cabinet and other improved features -- and this particular example is in truly excellent condition. It's the HORN, however, that really seduces the eye! We call your attention to the spectacular blue flower horn. A horn such as this was available in music stores at the time to replace the rather sedate all-black Victor horns. We carefully restored it using our proprietary 4-step process to precisely replicate the translucent turn-of-the-century color, and our resident artist added charming cabbage roses in the style of the period.
Not all vintage quarter-sawn oak is created equal! The particular grade of wood used in making this cabinet is magnificently figured with dramatic grain. Perfectly restored using the precise materials originally employed at the Victor factory. Please note the fresh condition of the hardware.
The black "back-bracket" is in fine original condition. Note the vivid original gold filigree. The soundbox (needlehead) we have meticulously rebuilt and adjusted to produced strong and sweet music.
The sturdy, steady, reliable Victor motor. Spotlessly clean. We have installed a brand new main spring to insure that you have all the power you need to play your 78 rpm records.
Original schematic inside the cabinet.
Beneath the cabinet is this original patent notice. On Victor instruments the serial number that appears on the ID plate on the front of the cabinet is also penciled-in at the top right of this notice.
This stunning instrument entertains today as it did a century ago ! This Victor II looks and plays great! What is the difference between what you buy from phonophan and what you buy from eBay? EVERYTHING. We are constantly shocked and bewildered to see the level of outright deceit that passes for "normal" every day on eBay. If you want the TRUTH, call us today!
