Harold Lloyd hones his shaving razor on the platter of an off-brand upright in Captain Kidd's Kids. At least if I remember right. And in Girl Shy there is a VV-50 Victrola on the table in The Flapper's room playing (presumably) a jazz record as he tries cave man tactics.

I think Lloyd is the funniest man to ever go before the cameras.

A Credenza is shown (but not played) in one scene from 1933 crime movie, "Blondie Johnson" starring Joan Blondell.

From the 1953 film “Those Redheads From Seattle.” Movie is set in 1898 but the Edison Home shown is probably about 5 years newer than that, and the horn about 10 years.

Krakatoa east of Java (1969)
The ship captain is seen assembling this familiar machine in 1883 on board ship. The anachronism does not appear later in the film.
The fact that Krakatoa is West of Java seems to have been missed by the fact checkers however and remains in the film title.
