Possibly a bit left field , but here's an auction that's a bit different.
I wonder what type of Gramophones they were?

https://www.the-saleroom.com/en-gb/auct ... b000efa702

"An unusual printed copy of an edict of Muzaffar al-Din Shah (reg. 1896-1907) giving permission for the sale of gramophones to an American Limited Society
(Societe Anonyme Fournisseur) after their functions had been demonstrated to the Shah, Qajar Persia, dated dhu'l-qa'dah 1323AH/December 1905-January 1906AD,
4ll. of printed nasta'liq script on paper, within gold cloudbands, the lines interspersed with bands of undulating floral motifs, a reproduction of the seal of the Shah
dated AH 1314/AD 1896-97 and his signature, both within floral cartouches, creased, framed, 52 x 32.5cm. Provenance: Bonhams, Islamic and Indian Art, 7 October 2010, Lot 31"

Cool! Pity they don't give a full translation of the text.
