Swiss Horned Gramophone

Here is a basic horned gramophone from about 1910. It has no well known name and comes under the heading of a “Swiss” horned gramophone. These were original machines imported into the UK from Germany and Switzerland early in the 20th century when there was a shortage of reasonably priced machines.

This gramophone has a well made oak case with nicely moulded trim, a good “Exhibition” type sound-box and Continental embossed steel horn that has been re-painted in shades of blue. There is an early single spring (uncased) motor. The lid is hinged at the back so the motor can be viewed.

Price £375
This gramophone would have to be collected in person from TR8 5SE as I am unwilling to use a courier for items like this.
