Listing for:
Victor Talking Machine Type "Monarch"


Looks just like it did over 100 years ago, this Victor Monarch is unquestionably the finest one you'll see on the market today!

 


The quarter-sawn oak cabinet with its gingerbread trim is a highlight of this short-lived cabinet design.

 


A very elegant design, the Victor M later became the much more common Victor III.

 


The horn is just fantastic, with only the most inconsequential of patina marks -- proof of its long, pampered lifetime.

 


Another view of the left of the cabinet.

 


The right side, gorgeous original crank, and Nipper horn decal: 100%.

 


That is even the original turntable felt!

 


The Concert reproducer is hardly ever seen, and goes for hundreds at auction. Here it comes free, and has always been with this phonograph.

 


The nickel plating on the hardware is just fantastic, and the backbracket gold and blue striping is as nice as they come!

 


From the right, the backbracket is better than 99% of them out there!

 


After 100 years, still no wear at all to the striping decoration.

 

This Victor Monarch dates to 1903, and is about the nicest all-original Victor likely to be seen on the market today. The reproducer is a RARE Concert model reproducer, which was only used for a few brief years. The horn is in superb original condition, and has never been rolled and polished. You will be hard-pressed to find fault with this scarce machine. Straight out of a 40 year collection, this is a time capsule!
