I saw this on ebay this morning and thought it was such a beautiful gramophone 'case'.

Does anyone know which model it came from and what it looked like when it was complete I wonder ?

I am not on ebay incidentally.

It looks like a HMV Senior Monarch case, it is a nice machine with a wooden or long conic metal horn when complete.

Thank you very much CarlosV.

I looked it up on the internet and as you say it is a very nice machine - it is good to see how it used to be.
