Columbia graphophone, B1 Sterling, nickle plated horn. 1901
Columbia graphophone B1 Sterling, nickle plated 8 panel flower bell horn. I believe this machine was made in 1901
The nickel 8 panel horn I do believe is original to the machine, however I have seen some models with 9 panels. The joint on the end of the horn (the threaded piece) is a little loose, it could do with some solder.
Powered by a 2 spring motor in good working condition, original reproducer, also looks to be original cabinet transfers.
The cabinet has a repair on the left side, a piece of wood has been fitted to cover a crank hole. I was told by the last owner, the machine came with the wrong motor, so the right one was found and fitted.
I saw one recently sell in the USA for US$2550.00, this is a bargain.
