I jut picked this up from a local auction and it seems to be a late machine for a horn gramophone , would anyone know what model/year it might be?
The motor board is 13.5 inches square , it has a No 2 soundbox and a double spring motor.
As far as I can make out the Reference is HWO

Thanks
Steve

that's strange, I've never seen a turntable hold-down ring/clip on anything but a portable.

The motor looks like a HMV no.32. According to late Graham Barber it was used 1921-41. The speed control seems to be similar to Dennison, except the base looks a bit different? My guess is early 20’s if the transfer on the front is legit and the no.2 soundbox correct?

Jaso

The "thick frame" HMV logo was introduced in 1924, so I think what you have is a very late Model 24 which was produced from July 1922 to December 1924. The No.32 motor and the No.2 soundbox are both correct for this period.

Thanks all - I did manage to find one picture of a Model 24 which doesn't show detail , so I'll search for an original catalogue or illustration

that's OK although why they make you buy two I don't understand unless they are difficult to apply , I have an original black painted horn ( needs TLC ) which I think is from this model which I believe take the small HMV plug in elbow , I'll post some pictures for you to see

Here is the only image I could find of a similar machine with the (very indistinct) framed HMV transfer :
