Had this all typed up last night and something happened with my internet connection.

Make: Brunswick
Model: Style 35 than became Style 135
Serial #: 337791
Years Made: 1917? to ?
Original Cost: Mahogany $350.00, Walnut $400.00
Case/Cabinet size (inches) Height 49", Width 24", Depth 24"
Turntable/Mandrel: 12" Turntable
Reproducer/ Sound-Box: Altona reproducer "All-Record Reproducer, which plays all records by simple change of position."
Motor: Nickel-plated 3 spring motor
Horn Dimensions:?
Reproduction Parts: Mahogany;Fretwork part of the grill. Walnut; turntable velvet (I do have the original but it is very soiled)Grill cloth both machines (there were just threads left).
Current Value: ?
Interesting Facts: The Brunswick catalogs I have state the Style 35 was introduced to replace the Style 350 which was more ornate but did not have the curved sides and front of the Style 35. Price started out at $350.00 for the Mahogany and $400.00 for American Walnut. Electric motor could be added for 25.00. Later Style 35 became Style 135 and the prices increased to $400.00 for the Mahogany, $425.00 for the Walnut and $50.00 extra for electric motor. Early models had a wood motor board, no Brunswick metal badge and no serial number(see picture of the Mahogany machine). No production numbers are available for Brunswick machines.

Thanks Sean for the kind words. Wish there was a collectors book available for the Brunswick machines. It would sure make research easier.

Beautiful Brunswicks. They are often underrated machines, but you know better! :)

By the way, be patient for a little while longer, and you'll be rewarded with a major new Brunswick reference posted in its entirety on the APS website...

Beautiful machines! Thanks! Amazing to have both in such great condition. Walnut is always stunning, but I have never seen such a dramatic mahogany. Awesome!

Beautiful Brunswicks! I will look forward to the web site too. When the time is spent to get the Ultona right, you end up with an outstanding phonograph

Your Brunswick is a beautiful machine. I can only imagine how amazing these machines looked when new. I am intrigued by the beauty, ingenuity, and gimmickry of the "off-brand" manufacturers. They came out with such wonderful cabinetry and conveniences that I'm surprised they didn't fare better than they did. The European phonographs & gramophones were able to make a cheap and inexpensive model look much more expensive than they really were.
