This Grafonola, probably known in the Columbia catalog as the "Jewel", dates to the mid-'teens, in the pre-World War era when the record business was booming and everyone was switching from the horn model phonographs to the sleek and modern internal horn machines. This phonograph was issued at $35, making it affordable to the masses, and came equipped with a powerful and steady motor, large size reproducer for volume, and Columbia volume control louvers if the reproducer did its job TOO well! Original finish, hardware and turntable felt. Old repair to hinge, done pretty well, and comes complete with a large supply of needles and records for your entertainment. A good machine in excellent working condition at a reasonable price.
