Listing for:
Victrola Twelve


Note the smooth sides with that understated elegance Victor gave to its high-end models.

 


Here is the machine with its unique, narrow doors open.

 


The gold plating is really nice on this one. Most examples out there have worn and pitted plating. Not this one!

 


Nice crank, reproducer, lid lift --- overall a very proud specimen.

 


The lid is free from watermarks, rings, gouges, scrapes, writing, etc.

 


The wood is red mahogany. Note the very small, very old scuff on the front -- only really apparent under these high flash conditions.

 


The reproducer has been rebuilt and is tuned to play all your favorites.

 


An impressive machine!

 


Very clean, this is not one was not rotting in someones' basement. It has been lovingly looked after for generations!

 


The underlid area is as nice as they come, everything is crisp and showy.

 

This Victrola XII is a scarce table-top, unmistakable in its unusual case style and heavy, powerful motor. Gold-plated fittings, components and wood finish under the lid appears original; cabinet exterior appears correctly restored. This model was only made in small quantities, compared with the hundreds of thousands of the commoner floor models, such as the Ten and Eleven. Originally this machine was called the Victrola Junior in the factory, because it was only the second Victrola produced, after the VTLA. Launched in 1909 and quickly withdrawn, less than 5,000 of these machines are listed as having left the factory. The best investment is to collect the rarest and best condition available, and you would be well-served with this machine at this bargain price. A very nice example of a hard-to-find model.
