Item:253986963346I have for your consideration, my simply magnificent HMV " Studio Grand" Upright Cabinet Gramophone, made by the Gramophone Company in England, around 1924. This upper end quality HMV comes with the expected refinements such as auto brake, visible speed indicator, and the beautifully made double spring model 32 motor. My HMV mahogany cabinet is finished in a very rare light maple colour. It is housed in a Chippendale inspired cabinet, which is one of the most famous classic and elegant styles produced by HMV. The polish to the cabinet while having some expected age related marks is very good indeed for a 90 plus year old unit. It retains it's original colour and superb piano finish. The nickel plating to all metal parts is excellent, and as the original green felt to the turntable is nice it does have some expected age related marks. Please look closely at the pictures to see just how good this classic HMV is, with note of the HMV tin of needles, and twenty '78' records l am supplying with this sale. I have fully serviced this gramophone and regasketed the lovely HMV no. 2 sound box, and as a result this machine is performing admirably, with the large double spring motor running strongly, whisper quiet and true to speed, playing any good 78 record with ease, and the sound produced is crisp and clear, with good tone and volume. My auction presents an opportunity to acquire a very high quality HMV instrument in a condition that is seldom found for this type of gramophone. A gramophone that will sit nicely in any serious collection, or simply a standout piece for the home. Not to be missed by the person who appreciates quality. * Cabinet dimensions are 47cm wide by 54cm deep by 110cm high, and it weighs approximately 40kg.* Pick up only from Balwyn. * I am happy to deliver the Cabinet to the Melbourne head office of a courier/transport company of your choice, organisation, and payment. l am also happy to deliver this gramophone to within a 50 km radius of the Melbourne CBD, for $30.Condition:Used, Era:1920s, Brand:HMV
