A pretty, plucky Victor Talking Machine with an optional solid brass nickel-plated flower horn -- stunning!
The cabinet with stately pillars, this instrument has all original components.
We removed all traces of dirt, crud, grease and gunk. And we carefully calibrated each component to factory specifications. Absolutely every detail has been attended. And therefore, you may view it today - and HEAR it -- as your great-grandparents would have done back in the day. The support bracket has original gold filigree decoration. And we meticulously rebuilt the soundbox (needlehead) to play loudly and clearly.
Note the famous "His Master's Voice" trade mark on thwe front of the oak cabinet. Inside is a powerful, double-spring motor. Will play your 78s smoothly and reliably. Can you imagine the kind of filthy, jury-rigged, worn out junk you find on eBay? Our commitment to quality is an antidote to online monstrosities from amateur dealers who overinflate their experience.
The nickel-plated horn is especially noteworthy. Victor sold only black-painted flower horns, so ambitious firms such as Hawthorne and Sheble of Philadelphia offered for sale a myriad of lovely alternatives to black. The horn is itself is brass, with the century-old nickel plating nicely intact and polished -- but remember the horn is 100 years old and the plating was not done yesterday. In short, the machine looks and IS a venerably preserved antique. This is a strong, reliable instrument, with a double-spring motor that produces high quality sound from your 78 rpm records. The stunning horn, gleaming like silver. A knock-out!
