Ken;
This phonograph literally takes my breath away. It has to be the most attractive grain patterns of any Circassian phonograph from any manufacturer that I have ever seen. Congratulations on a great addition to your collection.

I really appreciate the featured phonograph section for referencing important historic phonographs. Few are more important and more beautiful than your Columbia Grafonola Grand. Thank you for posting this and once again, congratulations for acquiring such an important phonograph.
