1903 Victor P Disc Phonograph W/orig. Horn * 100% Original, Museum Quality  Set


Make sure to check out all of my sales after you've looked at this one. I'm listing an outstanding assortment of musical, medical, technological and mechanical antiques, and I suspect that there will be something of interest to almost everyone.Here's a beautiful, all-original Victor "P" front mount phonograph manufactured 110 years ago. The phonograph iscomplete, correct and running great, and it retains its original paper notice on the underside of the base.

As you can see in the pictures, the machine is in museum quality condition throughout. The quarter-sawn oak cabinet is in excellent shape, with its original finish still intact. A few minor marks consistent with age and authenticity, but no significantdings and certainly no damage. Motor and mechanism are original, and the gear train is running smoothly, with minimal noise. Turntable and turntable felt are both original, and the felt has only a single blemish, near the spindle. The tiger-striped oxide finish on the support arm and bedplate are original and still prominent -- still beautiful too! Long throat Victor Exhibition reproducer is in excellent condition, with good mica and good gaskets. Tonearm is clean and straight and undamaged, its small hardware is original, and of course its finish is original too. The brake assembly is original and working properly. It needs a new pinch of leather, but it still slows the turntable down as designed.
The original brass and black Victor horn is in excellent shape, with a single noticeable ding near the elbow fitting, but otherwise the horn is still perfectly formed, with a super clean coat of original black paint. The Nipper decal is original and in excellent condition, with vibrant colors and no scarring. The brass horn elbow is original, and the patent information is stamped prominently into the side.
As noted above, the phonograph is not just a great looker, it's a great player too. Easily makes its way through an entire 10" record when its fully wound, with good, clear sound and minimal gear and turntable noise.
Overall, a super machine in really fine original condition. I will carefully prepeverything for shipping andpack everything carefully and properly. If you're not already familiar with how tooperate an earlydisc phonograph, don't worry. I'll provide you with simple, easy to understandset-up instructionsso you'll be able to usethe machine within minutes after you unpack it. Please note, this is a fairly large phonograph, and it will be expensive to ship overseas. The horn will obviously need to be packed separately, adding to the expense. If you're offerding from outside the United States or Canada, please touch base with me first so I can confirm that it can be shipped to your country at a reasonable cost. Buyer prepays and includes shipping. Paypal okay.
