Listing for:
Victrola in brown mahogany with gold hardware


A Victrola 111, at home in its music room. However, we need to find a new home for it, so it can make music in yours!

 


It's a shame to see the horn doors closed, but from time to time this machine must be silent.

 


The left side of the cabinet is fine, and original.

 


The lid, again, original. Note the key in the lock. We don't know if it is THE original key, but it is an original.

 


The Victrola decal under the lid shows the fine brown mahogany color underneath.

 


Albums store neatly underneath. The albums are, of course, included with the phonograph.

 


The Victrola No. 2 reproducer has been rebuilt to sound great. Note the lovely condition of the gold plating.

 


Original Victor record index.

 


Playing position.

 


ID plate showing a serial number in the 2000 range: production Summer 1922.

The Victrola 111 dates from the 1922-25 period and is the successor to the Victrola XVI (the luxury model dating in one form or another to 1906). Offered to the public in mahogany, oak, or American walnut for the not trivial price of $225, this was Victor's continued effort to offer something special for the wealthiest of Americans. This machine has a four spring motor, wide taper arm and upgraded Victrola No. 2 reproducer and is accented by all gold plated hardware. This is the best in acoustic sound reproduction short of the later Orthophonic system, and with an elegant, original mahogany cabinet and a storage cabinet filled with albums, this Victrola will turn heads. Cost-effective transport can be arranged nationwide or worldwide!
