Here is a fully restored Columbia Graphophone model BK manufactured around 1906. These are made to play standard Columbia or Edison 2 minute cylinder records. Unlike its Edison player counterpart, the Graphophone has a double set of winding springs enabling it to play two or three records on a single winding and it keeps a steady speed throughout the play. This is one of the first models to use the fixed lyre or harp shaped reproducer slide. The stylus on the reproducer is in good condition. The BK model has a beautiful oak cabinet with finger joint corners and lid. It has both the original Columbia Graphophone decal on the front and the early 1900's Paris, St. Louis, and Milan Grand Prize Worlds Fairs Award decal on the back. The BK model also provides four oiling ports that are accessed through the top of bed plate. It also has a speed adjustment so accessing the motor compartment is not necessary.
This record player is all original with the exception of the 14” Nickel plated horn which is new. It has been cleaned, oiled and serviced. The surface of the player deck has been repainted to match the original color and gold pin striping. One record is included with the player.The dimensions of the Columbia phonograph are 12 1/2" X 8" at the base and it stands 13" tall with the lid.
A live video of this player in action cam be seen on You Tube. Just go to You Tube and do a search for “Columbia BK 1234”. Sorry but the record in the video is not the best quality , I have no other records right now.
