Columbia Graphophone Model Q Cylinder Record Player 1900
This is an original c.1898 - 1903 Columbia Graphophone Model Q (second style) cylinder phonograph. The motor has been fully serviced (including main spring removal, inspection, cleaned and greased). The reproducer has been rebuilt and a new Sapphire stylus installed. The horn is a quality reproduction. The original gold decal on the base of the player identifies it as “The Graphophone patented 1887-1889 Columbia Phonograph Co. London”. The metal side piece is stamped with several patent dates from 1886 to 1901 and “American Graphophone Co. New York”. “The Columbia Model Q (second style) is basically the same as the original Q configuration but the base of the machine was black enameled with gold stripes and Graphophone identification decal. It has a cast filigreed winding key and a better sounding #7 reproducer.”
Overall the machine is in very nice condition. Also included are three cylinder records. The first is a Columbia recording #32633 “Wedding of Uncle Josh and Aunt Nancy (talking)”. The second is Edison # 1266 “Accordion Solo”. The third is a cracked cylinder but the second half plays well. It is Edison 8496 “Home Sweet Home”.
