Could you share a few more photos, including some of the reproducer?

I don't know what it is either, but I don't think it's a Pathé. Judging solely upon appearance and the design of the carriage and reproducer, it looks German to me. Just a guess, but Pathé machines are usually more artistic than functional.

Notice how the motor plate has a gap all around and also the appearance of the lid and the bottom part of the cabinet do not really match that well -- so possibly the bottom part is home made cabinet ? Looks like it might be made up of bits ? Dulcetto

to me it rather seems to be a phonograph from the line of phonographs made by excelsior
it almost could be a brother of the excelsior lucca model

The " Lucca " phonographs were not a product of the Excelsior Company ( of Cologne ). The " Lucca "along with the " Orpheus ", " Sirena " and "Lyra " models of cylinder phonograph were in 1905 being manufactured by the Fritz Puppel company of Rixdorf, Germany. By 1907 , the " Lucca " phonographs were being advertised as being manufactured solely by the giant Carl Lindstrom A.G. who had presumably previously absorbed the Puppel company. Regards from England Dulcetto
