Victor Type B



This article is part of the ANTIQUE PHONOGRAPH, GRAMOPHONE AND TALKING MACHINE IDENTIFICATION GUIDES.

The Victor Type B, incorporated most of the mechanism of the Type A, but sat it in a fancy oak case with fleur de lis molding applied on the side. Most examples have appeared with a black horn with single stripe, rather than the brass horn depicted below. Note the wooden tone arm now oriented vertically, rather than horizontally in the style of the Victor A and earlier Berliner machines.

This is the classic Victor machine as exemplified in Francis Barraud's His Master's Voice painting of Nipper the dog sitting in front of the horn.

At a price of $18 it would have been competive with entry level Edison models.
