Listing for:
Victor Monarch


Here is the phonograph from the side, a lovely image indeed.

 


The bold fluted corner columns make a strong statement, and the light gingerbread was only offered for a few brief years.

 


Note the retail price, still on the original shipping label on the bottom of the case - $40! Not a cheap machine in the 1902-5 era!

 


Victor M on the ID plate. You don't see too many of these in this condition!

 


The early style motor is a good player.

 


The oak horn is original and intact. Note the minor chips in the veneer here and there on the edge... with a few hours of TLC, this horn will be good as new!

 


The decal and the horn are totally original. That's what a quality collection is built on!

 


This horn is just a stunning aftermarket Victor flower horn. Incredible!

 


Another view of the optional horn. These horns are actually rarer than the wood ones. Just try to find one, and you'll see!

 

The Victor Monarch originates very early in the history of the Victor Talking Machine Company. Around 1900 and 1901, the phonograph became less of a technical marvel and more of a household entertainment device. At this point, the machines became more ornate and the customers more demanding: the instrument needed to look good and play well. The delicate moldings and corner columns make for a beautiful image in golden oak, and the early two spring motor plays solid and steady. Offered here with a fine, original oak horn ($2600), a superb blue flower horn ($2000) or a brass-bell horn ($1750) for a savings. Shipped to your door with a set of early records to play and a large supply of needles.
