Listing for:
Very early model Victor Schoolhouse (VV-XXV)


Here is the front of the Schoolhouse machine -- the oak has been restored and is in very nice shape.

 


A closer look....

 


Here is the Victrola decal underneath the lid. This was the only Victrola model with an external horn!

 


Another front view of the excellent cabinet.

 


The turntable area is very clean and totally correct. The turntable felt is old -- either original or an old, old replacement, and the nickel plating is in nice shape. Note the fantastic amount of needle storage offered behind the turnable!

 


The ID plate is the early brass style and in pretty good shape considering the rough use these machines used to endure!

 


This Exhibition reproducer plays loud and clear.

 


Here is the only mechanical "flaw" on this phonograph. The original horn elbow has some minor dents and the horn rivet has been replaced with a sturdy bolt. Here they are, so you know exactly what it looks like.

 


All closed up -- it's a sad sight because you know the music is silent. The lid is in nice shape.

 

In 1914, Victor introduced the VV-XXV - the only Victrola with an outside horn - for use in schools. The cabinet was built durably, the large wood horn designed to play to large crowds of children outside or inside, and the convenient pull-out shelf for use changing records or placing educational materials. The next year, however, it became clear that this early design had some flaws. For example, the piano-hinged lid obstructed easy access to the turntable and the horn was not easily stored when not in use. Therefore, subsequent models of the "Schoolhouse" machine had the now-common reversible hinges and a lift up shelf for storage of the horn beneath the playing area. That makes this example of the "Schoolhouse" -- number 1107 -- an uncommon specimen!!
