Zonophone Concert Grand 1901-1904:
Nice original Zonophone Concert Grand. All original except the reproducer (which is an excellant reproduction) and the horn support arms.
The case is excellant condition with no cracks, missing pieces, etc. The finish is still very nice with decals in nice condition too. The zonophone decal is near perfect and the "Concert Grand" decal is also very nice except for the small area on the bottom of the t that appears to have been rubbed off. The steel bedplate has all original brake, speed control , horn support screw, & crank that have not been refinished. The 9 inch turntable is original and has the plating wearing off on the outer edge. It still has the spring pin to hold the zonophone records. The wire cradle that the horn rests on looks old and a little corroded. The reproducer is an excellant reproduction and looks and works very well. The motor runs good and and it played two 10 inch records on one winding easily. There is no thumping or slowing down of the motor when the records were played.
The horn is the 36" long horn with a 14" diameter bell end. It is nice and straight with no dents and dings except as noted next. There are 3 small cracks in the bell of the horn. I tried to show them in the pictures but you cant hardley see them in the pictures , but they are there. There are a few tiny bumps on one area of the edge of the bell. They are also hard to see. The horn could use a good cleaning and polishing. This is nice machine and a real eye catcherShipping will be by fedex in two boxes. Ignore the shipping as it cant calculate for two boxes. It is only an estimate. ONly actual shipping costs will be charged. You can figure shipping to your address by using my zip code (97701) and your zip code for the destination. The box with the phonograph is 19" X 16" X 17" and weighs 32 pounds. The box with the horn is 18" X 18" X 37" and weighs 16 pounds. The phonograph and horn will be very well packed and protected. Wait for the invoice after the sale so that actual shipping charges and insurance can be calculated.
