“Mead” Horned Gramophone

This is an example of a simple horned gramophone from about 1910 made by the “Mead” Company from Birmingham. The Mead Company was well known for making bicycles but it is difficult to find much evidence about their production of gramophones. Several different model do turn up from time to time.

The gramophone has a single spring motor and its embossed steel horn has been re-painted in shades of red. The simple oak case has a typical brass-work  decoration on the front panel.

The gramphone plays well but as with all these older examples it should be used sparingly rather than as a work-horse for heavy duty playing.

                       A gramophone like this should be collected in person from TR8 5SE but a special courier could be arranged.
