The Columbia Princess, a small end table or night table, was introduced in 1912. It was the smallest and least expensive machine in a series of Grafonolas disguised as household furniture. Other Grafonolas in this series include the full size Regent, the Regent Junior, the Baby Regent, and the Columbia Colonial.
