The name “Decca” has been associated with gramophones, and especially records, almost from the beginning. The company made a name for itself during he first WW when Decca gramophone were sent to the front line trenches as entertainment for the troops. Decca was credited with producing the first portable gramophones (although there had been some others).
Decca machines have always been interesting in design and often used the reflex method for projecting the sound to the listener by bouncing the sound-waves off a bowl in the lid of the machine as in the case of this “Decca Junior” gramophone from about 1924.
This small gramophone is in very good condition and plays well. It has a small single spring motor, so the motor needs to be fully wound to play through a 10″ 78. The sound-box is the correct “Crescendo” as used on several Decca gramophones.
