It looks as if it would be for a Louis XIV or XV style cased phonograph.

Speaking of keys, does anyone recognize any of these barrel keys as phono related?

The key on the far right looks like the key that I use on a Herzog cabinet. It didn’t come with the cabinet, but it works.

I believe that this key came with the 230, 330 and the Japanese Lacquer XVII and 130, which Victor classified as Period Victrolas. The Period Victrolas such as Adam, Sheraton, Gothic, etc. came with their own distinctive keys that matched the style of the cabinet. I have seen the Adam, Gothic and Queen Anne keys. The attached picture is the Adam key.


I have a couple of these machines and would like to have the correct key for them. The phonograph key chart doesn't even show this key so I'm wondering if anyone has any further info on it.
