Columbia put the other talking machine companies to shame when it came to style. They specialized in eye-catching decals and glossy flower horns. This "BN" Disc Graphophone is distinguished by its warm oak cabinet with wide molding.  The horn is, of course, original, and we have repainted it in the authentic style of the period. We spent years perfecting the formula for original type of translucent color, as deep and crimson as a county fair candy apple. Our resident artist has added pert, pretty cabbage roses, in keeping with the fashion of turn-of-the-twentieth-century talking machines.

Please take special notice of the fact that we have carefully preserved the original, factory decals. This wonderful gold banner is in perfect condition.

On the front panel of the cabinet, this original Columbia "profile" decal  remains intact.

All components are in fine condition. Our instruments are spotlessly clean. We take no short cuts. 47 years of experience go into everything we sell. We have taken special care to skillfully rebuild and regulate the soundbox (needle head) to produce big, bold and brilliant music. In fact, we guarantee that this stunning instrument will be the loudest and most clear antique talking machine you can imagine.

The BN has a smooth-running spring motor, which we have literally spent hours professionally tweaking and adjusting.. Two brand new mainsprings insure plenty of power. The BN will play 10" or 12" diameter 78 rpm records,  and if you need some, just let us know.

Inside the cabinet, these original oiling instructions.

The Columbia Type BN Disc Graphophone -- a beautifully designed instrument, and at an affordable price! We are especially proud of the gorgeous finish on the horn, with its friendly floral motif.

Price: $1550.00 plus s/h, (NY State residents must add tax if applicable).
