Early 20th Century English “His Master’s Voice” Gramophone from Hayes Middlesex
Place this antique gramophone in your study or game room; crafted in England circa 1910, the music box example bears the trademark His Master’s Voice decal with Nipper the dog and a detached fluted brass horn. The cast metal horn bracket features a vine design and high mounted crank. The gramophone is in good condition commensurate with age and use and we do not guarantee the completeness or working order of mechanism. The Gramophone Company, based in the United Kingdom and founded on behalf of Emil Berliner, was one of the early recording companies, the parent organization for the His Master’s Voice (HMV) label, and the European affiliate of the American Victor Talking Machine Company. It was founded in 1898 by William Barry Owen and Trevor Williams in London, England. Owen was acting as agent for Emile Berliner, inventor of the gramophone record, whilst Williams provided the finances. Most of the company’s early discs were made in Hanover, Germany at a plant operated by members of Berliner’s family, though it had operations around the world. Measures: 20.75″ W x 17.75″ D x 27″ H.
