Looks like a Talk-O-Phone. It looks like it is just missing the horn elbow. Those do turn up. It would be worth pursuing.

Based on the motor and crank shaft, its definitely a Talk-O-Phone phonograph, but I dont know which model.

I have a reprint catalog that names it as "The Herbert".

It looks like all it needs is a leather elbow. I question whether the crank is original. I do have an original slotted Talk-O-Phone crank being used on a Victor E. It's available in trade.

You could probably use a leather elbow, but the correct one is cast aluminum.
