This stunning instrument literally
glows. It is crisp, and clean, and clear, and classy. Dazzling,
delightful, bewitching, ravishing! The original black flower horn has
been lovingly restored. Professionally, perfectly revived, in keeping
with our 47 years of experience.
The IV (4) was the only other full-sized mahogany talking machine made by Victor besides the princely-expensive model VI (6). The IV (4) cost more at the time than the oak models below it in stature, and therefore it sold in lesser quantities. The curvaceous styling of the IV was unique within the Victor roster. Note the "His Master's Voice" ID plate.
The support bracket is quite beautiful, retaining its blue and gilt filigree decoration. Of course, we also restored the soundbox (needlehead) to produce sweet, loud and clear music. All components are original.
The motor is strong, reliable and the power of its double-spring will play any record. And of course it is in perfect condition. What's the difference between what you buy from us and what you buy on eBay? EVERYTHING! On eBay you get patched-up junk that is grossly misrepresented. You shouldn't believe a word of what you read there. Phonophan gives you the highest quality instruments and restorations, all work done under the personal supervision of Tim Fabrizio, who has a degree in Fine Arts, has devoted his life to painstaking restoration work, and has written eight books on the subject of antique phonographs.
Most Victor talking machines were constructed of oak. Reasonably few were mahogany because mahogany was more expensive. This makes the Victor IV a rarity, and the look of it is undeniably alluring. If you want to experience what a Victor Talking Machine was like when it was new -- get this one! This scrupulously restored, excellent playing, sleekly beautiful Victor is a delight to the eyes AND ears!
