You're right, Bill. If you exclude the English machines and their stern Victorian air(except maybe for the extravagant Melba model), French Pathé made great looking ornate models, Spanish HMV had colorful machines, the German and Swiss also made some ornate machines, and as we see in this thread, Eastern Europe also produced great looking ones!

Beautiful machines! First time I've run across them.

I would agree, and I want to add the machine in the original posting is a real stunner. Beautiful!

That said, I have the impression American *motors* tended to be more robust and powerful than their (at least continental) European counterparts. Or perhaps I've just been unlucky in the European machines that have come my way?
