Listing for:
Victor the Fourth with smooth mahogany horn


This Victor IV sports its original smooth mahogany horn. (The flash reflects a little dust -- now I'm embarrassed!)

 


The front of the cabinet displays the Victor logo.

 


From the side, the smooth mahogany horn makes a statement.

 


Here, the lovely banding pattern in the mahogany grain is subtle but very attractive.

 


That's the original back bracket striping.

 


Another view from the front.

 


The horn shows its age -- be careful not to strip away the original color in the wood. You may wish to gently remove some of the patina for a little more shine and smoothness to the finish. There are no cracks or gaps on this horn. It is very solid and better than most!

 


The motor is the two-spring mechanism.

 


Another view. The motor is very clean.

 


Even the original oiling instructions are still in the motor compartment.

 


Here is what's left of the patent notice on the underside. Note the original sales price of $50. Wow, I'll buy a few of those!

 

The Victor IV was a sought-after instrument in the 1900s, due to its attractive mahogany cabinet and higher-end mechanical set-up. This example dates to around 1910 and has the wonderful dealer upgrade of the smooth mahogany horn. This machine has all original cabinet and mechanical parts, including original finish on the wood and back bracket support. Tone arm has been restored to the proper nickel finish. The reproducer is an Exhibition, standard for this model, and the motor a tough double-spring example with dial speed control. This is one of the harder-to-find models and, except for the deluxe Victor Six, is the only model of this series in mahogany. Safely delivered with a selection of 78 rpm records and a large supply of steel needles.
