It looks to have legs from a VV-405.


No it doesn't

why wouldn't Victor customise an original gramophone ? This was regularly done in the UK for Harrods having HMV machines refinished particularly with Chinoiserie


Victor offered custom finishes but this entire case has been rebuilt- and while it is handsome I think the case is too wide in proportion to the legs. Plus as previously posted the painting doesn't appear to be of the highest quality.
