Near Mint 1902 Zonophone Concert Grand Phonograph With Original All-brass Horn
If you're an uncompromising collector of antique technology, make sure to check out all my listings after you look at this one. I don't think you'll find a better, broader or more balanced assortment of technical antiques anywhere -- hundreds of no-reserve auctions each year, almost all of them featuring eye-popping "gee whiz" gadgetry in exceptional original condition. Its condition is close to mint, and it has no replica parts. The phonograph is in excellent working order, and it will arrive ready to play and enjoy.
The bedplate is excellent, with very little wear evident, and clean original nickel-plating. The spring-pin on the turntable is still resilient and still working. The original fancy arms are in excellent condition, with minimal nickel wear. The original all-brass Concert Grand horn (25" long with a 14" diameter bell) is in superb condition, with no dings, no dents, no issues. The original crank is in excellent condition, with nice original nickel plating.
The motor is in excellent condition, with plenty of torque, and the phonograph has no trouble making it through 7", 8", 9" or 10" records without needing to be re-wound. Gears are likewise in excellent condition, and the machine runs smoothly. I will pack the phonograph properly and make sure it arrives safely.
Sure, you can probably get a lower price from Joe and Janet Barn-Find, but when your "bargain" arrives broken, and without any hint of how it works or how you might be able to put it back together, you'll realize that you really do get exactly what you pay for.
