1912 Victor VI Phonograph With Spear Tip Mahogany Horn
Beautiful Victor VI, and it’s completely original. No re-plating, no replica parts, no refinishing. The original Victor “spear tip” horn is outstanding, with a few scattered minor marks, faint crazing in the finish and a spot-soldered nick in the gold-plated collar where it joins the wood. The full-color Nipper decal is crisp, complete and wholly original.
The cabinet finish is original, and its patina is pitch perfect — warm maroon with no irregularities. Cabinet itself is outstanding, with tight glue joints everywhere. Beautiful original gold-plating on the hardware and corner columns, with virtually no tarnish; excellent original turntable felt, with hardly any wear; glossy original back-bracket enamel, and nearly perfect original gold back-bracket decorations. The data plate on the front of the cabinet is clean and legible.
The original gold-plated Victor Exhibition reproducer sounds great. Loud and clear, with excellent dynamics.
You will be hard-pressed to find a better original example.
