Listing for:
Talk-o-phone Disc Phonograph


An Ohio Talk-o-phone in profile.

 


Note the tone arm and support -- original.

 


Here is the cabinet decoration. It is nice, but missing small bits of trim. Also, the color is kind of ochre. It really should be a dark chocolate oak color.

 


Another view of the cabinet.

 


Here is the tone arm support and cabinet.

 


The horn is actually very nice, dent free, and may not even need to be polished.

 


The body of the horn is nice and straight, and has most all of the black paint.

 


Definitely original turntable felt. Note the Talk-o-phone specific on-off speed control.

 


Here is the Talk-o-phone reproducer. We didn't rebuild the reproducer; you may choose to.

 


Finally, the motor with its 2 weight governor, is complete and working.

 

This Talk-o-phone disc phonograph dates around 1903-1905 and is a complete and scarce phonograph. Collectors know that Talk-o-phone horns, reproducers, tone-arms, and motors were different than any other make, and relatively hard to find in nice condition. This machine had the misfortune of being refinished in the past, however, is otherwise complete and original. Being sold at a big disount so you can restore it to its original color and replace the bits of missing molding and decal. The Talk-o-phone decal is currently available in excellent reproduction. Or, use this complete machine as parts for another project on a better condition cabinet.
