I recently purchased this working, Oak case Victrola and it has this label "Ultraphone" in the inside of the cabinet cover.
The Ultraphone was made by Thomas Edison at The National Phonograph Co. in Pittsburgh, PA.
My research tells me that this could not be an Ultraphone phonograph but that it might be a The Montgomery Ward Cecilian Phonograph or a PLAYER TONE phonograph with the wrong tag on it. I just can't be sure who made it. I am guessing that someone restored it many years ago and had a label from a rare machine that they used to bring better profit. The man that sold it to me, got it from his father about 40 years ago and said his father carried it on an airplane from Indiana to Texas. I purchased it advertised as what the label says, Ultraphone but for less than its actual value.
