This rare and desirable piece, made by the short-lived Keenophone Corporation of Philadelphia, PA, incorporates an internal horn into the lid of the cabinet, which in turn creates a very elegant, Federal-style piece of furniture. #6087
THE "BRASS BEAUTY"
This certainly is the most unique phonograph we've ever come across. Similar in form and style to a Victrola VV-260, this is entirely clad in brass, including the horn and phonograph tone arm and mechanism. The back story is that this was originally made on custom order for a brass manufacturing tycoon located in Chicago. It has been recently lovingly (and expensively) polished and lacquered. Certainly, you may never see another example such as this! #6970
The renowned Duplex, made in Kalamazoo, Michigan and sold primarily (and briefly) via special mail-order promotions. We have had this thoroughly restored and serviced; a real showpiece. #6889
BURNS & POLLACK CAPITAL PHONOLAMP
An interesting Burns & Pollack "Capital" phonograph-lamp. This restored piece has been refitted with a new shade and a lateral-cut reproducer, for playing Pathe records. A standard reproducer for playing regular 78-rpm records could be interchanged. #6009
KLINGSOR HARP-STRING PHONOGRAPH
An exceptional example of a unique Klingsor harp-string phonograph.
Klingsors were made in Germany in the 1920's, and offered a variety of models that featured a set of 36 "tuned" harp strings at the speaker outlet. Wisdom of the day claimed that these 36 harp strings enhanced the volume and resonance of the sound emanating from the speaker. #6034
This rare and unusual phonograph was made by the International Phonograph Company in Newark, New Jersey around 1911. The unusual design was an attempt to avoid patent infringement problems with Edison. #675
A very nice Echophone, by Paillard of Switzerland, complete with a brass hunting horn. The walnut cabinet is "reversible", so once the horn is removed, the phonograph section can be turned upside-down and compactly stored, with a carrying handle on the top of the case. #6045 (sale pending)
A pair of c.1920's American-made phonograph dolls, known as Madame Hendren and Mae Starr. Made by the Universal Talking Toy Company of Newark, NJ, these have a small phonograph mechanism inside, which accepts a specially-made cylinder that will play a short song, prayer or story.
We are offering these as a set, complete with six (6) original phonograph cylinders. #6991
