Learn more about the Victor
Sleek mahogany cabinet, silky mahogany horn -- stunning! We have professionally restored this splendid instrument using original materials, returning it to the precise look it had when it left the Victor factory in Camden, NJ over a century ago.
Can you imagine anything prettier? The condition of the hardware is excellent. This instrument fairly gleams! What's the difference between what you buy from us and what you buy on eBay? EVERYTHING! On eBay you get patched-up junk that is grossly misrepresented. You shouldn't believe a word of what you read there. Phonophan gives you the highest quality instruments and restorations, all work don't under the personal supervision of Tim Fabrizio, who has a degree in Fine Arts, has devoted his life to meticulous restoration work, and has written eight books on the subject of antique phonographs.
Original ornate gilt filigree in blue and gold on the original back-bracket. The hardware glistens. And of course, we restored the soundbox (needlehead) to produce sweet, loud and clear music. Every single part, down to the smallest screw, was disassembled, cleaned, calibrated and returned to its factory-original position. The motor is strong, reliable and the power of its double-spring will play any record.
A clean, quiet, smooth-running motor, expertly adjusted.
The under the cabinet, this original patent notice -- which also shows the original selling price -- $50. (with a metal horn and even more with a wooden one!), a HUGE chunk of change back in the day!
Most Victor talking machines were constructed of oak. Reasonably few were mahogany. This makes the Victor IV a rarity, and the look of it is undeniably alluring. This scrupulously preserved, excellent playing, sleekly beautiful Victor is a delight to the eyes AND ears!
Price: $4450.00 US, plus shipping and handling. (NY State residents must pay sales tax, if applicable.)
