If you ever wanted a MELBA at a decent price, now may be your chance:

https://www.ebay.com/itm/A-Gramophone-Phonograph-early-Melba-wooden-base-refitted-motor-for-restoration/153117100017?ssPageName=STRK%3AMEBIDX%3AIT&_trksid=p2060353.m1438.l2649

Looks like it has Great Potential!

(Not mine), Cheers, Bob S.

Please take care, because I asked the seller for a picture of the bottom of the Melba case and received the following picture, with a lot of woodworm holes ! and if you look carefully to the other pictures of the Melba case, you will notice more woodworm holes in the black painted case.

Cheers, John

The woodworm probably explains why the seller, a long established dealer, has not completed this rare machine himself.
