This is a “Douglas Art Case Cabinet” with a nickle outside morning glory horn; even though it isn't known exactly who made/sold it. They were sold by upscale New York City dealers as “custom models”, nearly all that are known use the Victor D phonograph mechanical parts. So this was some kind of hybrid aftermarket conversion for wealthy buyers. They were only made for 2 or 3 years, and this one likely was made in 1905.
A HUGE thank you to Paul Edie for helping garner more precise information on this phonograph set!
