Well, you don't show whether the alignment pin is intact, but that adapter was designed for use with an Edison Disc Phonograph. It's nickel-plated, and your C-19's metal parts are not, but aside from that, it should work, assuming it isn't broken.

You'll want to swivel the head around to the lateral position. As shown in the vertical position, you could use it to play sapphire cut Pathé records, or steel needle verticals like early Okeh or Operaphone.

But please don't use a steel needle on the Pathé's, they should be played using a sapphire stylus.

Interesting... I don't think that I've seen that maker or one that type before out of all the adapters that I've ever seen.
