From the 1913/14 UK Columbia catalogue. This was their most expensive horn model, and yours is a magnificent example. Do you know it's history?

Thank you very much for the information and the photo!

I would like to clarify that this gramophone is not mine but of a dear friend of mine (the person who let me into this world) who does not know how to use the internet well;

I showed him the picture and he thanks you!!

is it possible to have it in greater definition? so I could print it and give it to him so that he puts it near the columbia;

he told me the story ("nothing really interesting" so he told me) of how he recovered it 8 years ago:

a friend of his from Rome who goes around the world of used objects and flea markets called him and told him he had a friend who had an old turntable in a garage;
my friend asked him how old he was and he said "he will be 40, I don't know I have to hear from my friend; he asks for *** euro";
my friend replies that for a turntable it is too much but (as you never know) he asks him to see it;
A few days pass and in the end his friend takes it and takes it with him to the flea market in our city to show him;
the trumpet was removed from the cabinet and was wrapped in old newspaper;
my friend unwrapped and as soon as he saw what it was he immediately covered with the newspaper and tried to give the impression of little interest;
then he said to his friend "your friend asks *** euro, ok I'll make this effort!"
paid him and took him home;


sorry for my English
I've used google translator

Giacomo

Thank you Giacomo. Unfortunately my catalogue is a photocopy and lacks the definition of an original. The image is the best I can achieve.

Perhaps another member may have an original which they could scan and post for you.

Roger.
