    Columbia Grafonola De Luxe 1st Style was circa 1910, with an average list price of $225 back in the day. This model was Columbia's top-of-the-line phonograph when first introduced in 1909. Constructed of San Domingo mahogany; this particular example was fitted with a double-comb Regina musical box movement. (It is possible that the music box mechanism was added by the dealer after the unit left the factory.) Identical machines with a Regina decal inside the lid are known as Reginaphone Style 240s.

    This particular machine has been restored to its original piano finish, and the mechanism has been cleaned, oiled and adjusted to perfect play. It is missing the door lock, but plays 78 rpm records as well as 15" Regina tune sheets.

    I have always had a love of mechanical things; but my greatest loves are music boxes and phonographs! Wish there was a way to post a video to hear this one! It has beautiful tone.

    I wish there was a separate main category on here for Phonographs and/or Music boxes....
