Lot: 2003 - Berliner Hand Wind Disc Gramophone

As described on page 34 in the Talking Machine Compendium, it states ?A hand driven Berliner Gramophone originally sold for $15.00. This reasonably priced machine inaugurated Berliner?s activities in the United States?. One issue with early machines is that they are often found incomplete, having gone through 1 or 2 generations of ownership. When an incomplete machine is found, rarely are the parts available to complete it. Most collectors feel that a complete machine with some reproduction parts is better than an incomplete machine. Once replated, an original nickel part looks brand new and new wood can be refinished. When describing this machine, we are being honest saying this is a partially original machine with reproduction parts to complete it. Some items are clearly new and other parts are aged. As far as original parts, the turntable, the record hold down, the travel arm resting post, and wood travel arm appear to be to have aged more than other parts. The reproducer is clearly new as is the elbow and Bakelite stepdown pulley, but the metal casting that supports the pulley appears to be original. The nickel turntable flywheel shows signs of age. The travel arm is stamped PAT?d May 6 1890. An oak base has several patent dates stamped into it. The funnel horn is an older reproduction and measures 16? x 10?. Machine would need new O ring belt. Base measures 15.375? x 9.75?.
