Hello everyone! :)
I have this nice looking gramophone. Some have said, that it is a belgium gramophone. I know that the motor is a single spring and Swiss made.
There is a name inside the soundbox: "MÆSTROPHONE REPRODUCER-The best and the loudest".

Does any of you know this model?

It might conceivably be a Miraphone. I only mention this name as I have a machine with similar pattern cabinet, winding handle, speed control, brake, turntable, back bracket fixing and horn to elbow connection - the horn is also of similar pattern with red painted interior as yours is. My machine is very small though with 20cm turntable and the horn is of similar size to a G & T trademark model. Getting definitive information on Miraphone has proven to be a difficult task but I believe my machine originates from the 1905/6 period.

This is from the Paillard Maestrophone catalog, 1907 / 8 / or 9

not 100% identical but close

Whatever it is, it's a nice machine...

Oh nice :) Thank you for the answer :) It looks very much alike these.
I bought for 2 years ago from an old lady in my town, who had it from her grandmother, so it is pretty old. It sounds really good.
