Orchorsols have one major defect: they're too hard to find! :D

An excellent purchase indeed. Portables are rarely seen in this amazingly good condition. And what a nice combination of colours and woods!

It's yours of course, but in my opinion this portable really asks to be played! ;)

I have found very little information anywhere about Orchorsol Gramophones and plenty on many lesser brands.
Aside from that on this thread. I have a share certificate and Instruction sheets for the Portable and setting up the soundbox.
I can scan and post the latter if anyone needs it.
Has anyone got some more info of catalogue pages that they could post please?

I have written an article about my Orchorsol for the CLPGS magazine. It should appear in the next issue around mid December.
I have copies of the portable and soundbox instruction sheets. I have never seen a catalogue, but here are some period advertisements :
