1902 Zon-O-Phone Glass-Sided London Grand Phonograph

Like the early glass-sided Zon-O-Phone Concert Grand, the glass-sided Zon-O-Phone London Grand — its European counterpart, sold by International Zonophone — is uncommon and eminently collectible. Both were transitional phonographs, bridges between the simple but elegant glass-sided “A” of 1900-01 and the more ornate, fancy-armed Zon-O-Phones of 1902-04.

Condition of this example is excellent throughout. It’s been judiciously restored (cabinet refinished, nickeled parts re-plated), and the fancy arms are replicas, but the phonograph is ruggedly built, beautiful to behold, and it plays very well. Both cut glass cabinet panes are original and undamaged, as is the 24″ all brass Zon-O-Phone horn. Original crank and original reproducer, and the horn’s original elbow is still securely soldered to the barrel.
