The machine on the right is the 460 Lumiére it was made in 1924 and proved not be a very good seller. In 1926 the HMV company used the left over cabinets to make the 461, sales were never spectacular. They are both very nice machines, the Lumiére is difficult to use, the diaphragm is large and heavy, the sound is very different reflecting of the the large lid. The 461 is much easier to use with excellent sound reproduction.

460 Lumiére Oak original sales total 867 with 484 of these returned to the factory. Mahogany sales were 877 with 223 returned to the factory.
461 sales were 615 oak and 618 mahogany.
