I mentioned this in the 130 thread as it is essentially a similar machine but this one has the no. 52 oil bath motor, re-entrant type tone-arm and fittings shared with it's more transportable cousin, the 113.

Yes, typical Indian mash up. I cant tell if it was ever previously an earlier table grand which got a later retrofit, if that makes sense?

Mind you, the cabinet is definitely 1930's Deco style.

That is a beautiful design. And the motor looks very Columbia like. Original machines from countries outside of the usual mainstream are so interesting.

Thanks for sharing!
Andreas

You're very welcome, Andreas. In fact the HMV 52 is based on the Garrard Super motor which was an earlier oil bath design.

Thanks, Graham. I think this is a unique machine made to order and yes, the oil-bath motor is quite special.
