Sold in the USA as the Polly Portable or Brunswick Parisian with a different horn cone. They play surprisingly well when adjusted properly.

This Guiniphone has one of the best designs of the cardboard horns with the flapper girls. Doesn't get much more 1920's period than that.

In the US did Brunswick acquire the Polly portable Company? Or were the 2 companies both making these at the same time?
