I posted a copy of the 1913-14 UK Columbia catalogue on the thread below. Although not identical to any of the models illustrated, the machine you have pictured appears to be a genuine Columbia. It, or one just like it, has been for sale on UK eBay for some considerable time.

I find this to be a handsome machine. The back bracket matches the one on Columbia's US model BN. The motor is completely unlike any US Columbia motor that I've seen, which are quite readily identifiable. That's not meant to cast any doubts on the originality of the posted one. As for the machine coming up on the auction block, that appears to be a repainted horn. Nicely done. I like Columbia machines. My biggest problem seems to be my not being able to find horns in decent, original shape.
