    Hello, I've purchased this record player for my home and have been trying to find out who the maker is? I don't think it's HMV as should say so somewhere. There is a mark as shown in photo, has a cross with a horn and ring, above this has marque deposee. I also have the brass horn. Any information would be appreciated, age, manufacturer etc. Many thanks once again for any help.

      I'm sure your aware that marque deposee is French for trademark filed. So there are lists of antique french trademarks available online for free...a good place to start.

      Looks like a Pilliard motor. I have one similar that has a tiny two main springs. Does it say Swiss made anywhere?

      Hello everyone, thanks for all the replies. I couldn't open the attached link but the symbol of the cross, ring and horn all match that of Paillard. Just doesn't say Paillard or swiss made. I've taken some extra photos and will list them now.

      oldestrope, Do you mean that you couldn't open the "php" link, or the PDF file linked from there?

      Here's the link for the PDF:

      I actually looked through all the pictures and dod not see it. I did find an example for sale that shows the logo...but why does yours have a French trademark writing? Now I'm curious..
    10. oldestrope, 11 days ago
      Hi keramikos and dav2no1, Thank you, I was able to read through it using this link. Unfortunately I didn't see it either. Will keep trying and if I happen to find one with the same mark I'll let everyone know. Really appreciate everyones help.

      If you look at the auction link above..the 5th picture shows the Paillard tag with that logo.

      But still curious of the French trademark...maybe it was just telling people that were using them in France that it was trademarked?
    12. oldestrope, 11 days ago
      Would they have done this? It's possible. I'm sure it's probably Paillard now but would be good to find another with the same mark. I'm still looking. Thanks again.
