Listing for:
Seldom-seen Columbia BNW disc phonograph with nickel horn


The Columbia BNW is not often seen - it is a low production model that came standard with a simple embossed metal horn. This example came with a catalog upgrade horn - the nickel horn.

 


The nickel horn is a great item to show off the machine.

 


A view of the crank side of the phonograph.

 


Here is a view of the left side. The backbracket is nickel-plated - an unusual feature on many Columbia disc machines.

 


The decal is in above-average condition on its original tiger oak cabinet. The decal has just slight age wear.

 


The turntable and on-off-tempo control. Note the turntable dust ring!

 


Again, the horn is all original and in superb condition.

 


Tone arm and original reproducer. This is an early example of the BNW from around 1909.

 


The music plays great on this model - with a double sprung motor, you can play a long time.

 


The motor is in fine condition.

 


The original paper label is present in the motor compartment.

 

The Columbia BNW was a later issue in the Columbia line (circa 1909), and has a lot of premium features. For example, this model has a two-spring motor, nickel-plated back bracket, turntable dust ring, and nine-panel nickel morning glory horn. This example is in fine condition, plays well, and is all original except for the replaced turntable felt. Mechanically adjusted, lubricated (including the springs), and complete with records and two packs of needles.
