I noticed he was asking for any id help so wondered if anyone could help him /her ?

I wouldn't mind knowing a bit about it too.

It looks like an interesting frankenphone. The tonearm is too long to play any records on it, and the ad says there is no hole for the crank.

Look like it was made as a decorative object using some real pieces

Interesting.

I appreciate the information.

Maybe a shame that s/he didn't say how s/he came across the gramophone.
