Since it's "Football season" and I'm not really a fan, I thought I would add a couple of featured phonographs. My camera is not the best so I apologise for the picture quality.


Make: Victor
Model: VV-350
Serial #: 1216
Year(s) Made: Late 1924- Early 1925 (less than 1 year)
Original Cost: $235.00
Case/Cabinet Size(inches): 41.5 inches high, by 21.5 inches wide, 23.25 inches deep.
Turntable/Mandrel: 12" Turntable
Reproducer/Soundbox: Victrola No. 2 Sound Box
Motor: 4 Spring Motor
Horn Dimensions: ?
Reproduction Parts: Turntable Felt
Current Value: ?

Interesting Facts: Estimated production of spring motor type was 880. Was added to the catalog in late 1924 along with 2 other models, VV-360 and VV-370. Cabinet was offered in Mahogany only. Featured gold plating on exposed metal parts,air dashpots in the lid support,semi-automatic brake and automatic speed indicator. Was marketed to the more affuent buyer but very few were sold so all three models were discontinued in early 1925.

This is a very nice machine, thanks for sharing. I really like the straight lines on these later uprights, very art deco. I've only seen a VE-360 before in the Johnson Victrola Museum in Dover, DE. Also a very handsome machine. Would you mind sharing some more detail pictures of the inside, maybe the brake mechanism, and the motor?

Thanks again
Andreas
