Listing for:
Unusual Reginaphone double comb music box with rare front mount phonograph set up


This is an unusual, early Reginaphone with front mount phonograph hardware. The cabinet is in oak, with pinstripe inlaid decorations.

 


The Reginaphone decal and the brass-belled horn advertise that this is more than the everyday Regina music box!

 


The duplex comb arrangement playing the 15-1/2" discs provides a loud tone and an enormous selection of music is available with this disc size.

 


Here the Reginaphone is ready to play your favorite 78 rpm record through the Columbia tone arm set up. Some components of the Columbia set up have been renewed with the highest-quality reproduction parts.

 

The duplex comb Reginas are not uncommon, nor are the Reginas with rear-mount horns produced after about 1902. However, the Reginaphones made by Regina, in conjunction with the Columbia phonograph company, in the 1899-1901 period are not seen frequently. The reason is because phonographs alone were considered a novelty, and so a very special customer was needed who wanted the newest technology possible along with his tried-and-true Regina music box. This Regina is in fine operating condition, playing both the 15-1/2" discs and the 78 rpm records. This item, on consignment to us from one of the finest collections in the Midwest U.S., is restored and comes complete with a set of music box discs and phonograph records. With this instrument, you have a rare artifact of American musical history and a musical delight!
