This is my Victrola. It's a 1925 Credenza. It's a monster, and takes up more space then I would like, but it was my Grandmother's and it means so much to me.
When I was 11 my Grandmother became ill and asked that her kids request items before the passed. Mom requested this for me. She also had several Edison's, and another Victrola. This one however was the one she played records on when we were little. I received a large amount of records that had been my mothers as well.
Now I have an exstensive collection of records, and lean towards the Jazz, R&B, and Western. There is nothing that replaces the sound of this monster.
The Credenza was the most expensive of the first four Orthophonic Victrola models introduced in November 1925. It featured the largest horn that Victrola had ever offered, and was frequently used to demonstrate the amazing quality of Orthophonic reproduction. A large and elegant cabinet gave this model an impressive appearance. The Credenza was available in mahogany or walnut, and included an automatic brake and gold plated hardware.
