- Source: eBay
This auction is for a very nice vintage 1904 VICTOR/VICTROLA, model VV4-3, #93948. It is made by the VICTOR Talking Machine Company in Camden, New Jersey. I have had this in my personal possession for the past 8 years, after purchasing it at an Antique Store. The owner of that store had just gotten it from an estate sale.

Rotrda Nos. 4180, 1 de Febrero, 1904 y 6035, 17 de Enero 1906. Pat. in U.S.and Foreign Countries." T is a crank on the right side. It is mahogany in color, and has a lid that raises.

T are also a couple of places that the veneer has raised up a little. Overall though, the condition is very good. T are also 40 needles ... read more
