Just received a Message with further information. It seems to be indeed a DGAG. He is adamant, that the Instrument is original. I am a happy camper :D

I have one exactly the same, except for the horn which is painted faux wood. Even though its small in size I find it extremely stylish!

Yours is not G&T but once again Deutsche Grammophon. The case and back bracket are in fantastic original condition. The horn for this model should be painted a dark brown false wood patterning color.

If it is indeed a Deutsche Grammophon model, cleary identifiable by stamped DGAG letters on the underside, the oak case was dark stained originally. A small witches hat brass horn came with it.

But didn't it have this base then ?


This is a UK Junior Monarch (in a museum in Edinburgh, Scotland)

Do you doubt it?
With this machine the wood is not oak - its a softer wood probably trying to pass - with the stain - as something more expensive
small witches hat brass horn - not necessarily on this model.

Do you have a DGAG catalog I would say 1908/9 it should be represented there?

TEAK - can you see if yours has a DGAG stamp with a serial number

The HMV should clean up quite well. The brake is screwed on incorrectly backwards and missing the lever, so incomplete. There is vertical molding (3 pieces?) missing from the other side which is a bit of a headache unless you know a good carpenter to duplicate this exactly, and some bits of the case have been a bit roughly handled. Motor needs a good clean. The front portion of the tone arm is on the wrong way around.

Would like to see this one after you clean it up. 387 was an OK price.

I thought so. The duplex maestrophone was 220 €. i always wanted some horn machines, so this haul comes in handy :D
