These are pretty rare! The seller says that it includes a few (maybe 2) paramount records as well.

We have a Paramount. This machine was made by United Phonograph Corp., Wisconsin, about 1920. They also made the Puritans, Wisconsin, Vista and the United brands. The mechanics are the same in the different brands (at least the models we have).

Here are some of the pictures from the Paramount from the CL ad(for posterity):

Hi phonolamplighter,

Are you sure they made a "Wisconsin" brand machine. Can you point me to any documentation/literature? You have piqued my interest.

Thanks,
Bob in Wisconsin
