See how interesting the configuration of this phonograph engine Parlophon.
The body surrounding the ropes are cast iron, while the gears are at the bottom, protected by a steel plate.
Ah, the Germans and their wonderful machines ...
Now is to go to the restoration, when they see the box will fall on their back!
Has anyone seen anything like this?

Looks very unique. Do you have the cabinet it belongs to? maybe it was custom-built for a specific cabinet.

I have yes, the complete machine is only dismantled for complete restoration.
The columns are in bronze.
Here are photos of the oak cabinet.

That is a very interesting machine...

Probably the reproducer is not original, the Exhibition was made by Victor and later by HMV, Parlophone utilized their own branded reproducers. I have seen imitations of the Exhibition made in Europe, it could be the case here, as the label looks different from the usual. The machine however is very nice, I have seen this model with the columns and the decoration on the front, please post the photos after the restoration.

Hahaha, nice to know that I'm not the only one, I liked the name you gave him.
Would it be possible for you to post a photo of your machine?
