Listing for:
Early Victor D with Ornate Carved Case


A Victor D with a speartip oak horn.

 


Here is a closeup of the turntable - twelve inches - the premium size for a premium instrument.

 


The horn is intact and makes the music a little more mellow .

 


Here is the original decal on the horn.

 


The ID plate shows a serial number in the 300s... it is among the very first made!

 


This is the triple-spring motor with three-ball governor.

 


Another view from the top, showing the elbow and tone arm.

 


The crank is there, and the turntable felt has been renewed with older material.

 


Here is a close-up of the carved moldings on this case.

 


Note the early round-hole Exhibition reproducer. That is a rare example from the pre-fiber needle period.

 

This Victor D was the Camden, N.J. company's model for the discriminating customer back in the early 1900s, and this example was one of the first off the production line. With a low serial number and original, early reproducer, this machine looks much as it did over a hundred years ago. It is paired with a gorgeous oak horn. This model has been restored mechanically and the finish brought back to the original color and luster. In working condition, guaranteed, and ships from our Chicago location.
