Apollo is the name used by the firm Craies & Stavridi for gramophones they imported and sold in the UK from about 1916 to 1930. Apollo gramophones appear in many types and the workings are from the Paillard Company in Switzerland.
This s a very well made portable gramophone in the standard form of most of the portables of the 1920s. It plays very well using a good quality sound-box. The gramophone has some similarities to Columbia portables of the same period. It has an integral winder at the front of the case and there is a metal motor-board.
An auto-brake is fitted and can be adjusted to stop the turntable at the required point.
