Victor's last hurrah for the outside horn phonograph, the Victrola XXV was sold for use in schools into the mid 1920s, a recognition of the acoustical superiority of the outside horn as opposed to the internal horn Victrolas which had invaded the home.
The wooden horn was standard on all variations of the Schoolhouse Victrola -- depending on the year of manufacture either a smooth horn or a ribbed horn was employed.
Some versions were fitted with a detachable lid and a folding shelf underneath to store the horn. The drawer in the front pulls out for convenient record storage.
Name plates prior to late 1917 carry a designation of V XXV (Victor XXV) rather than VV XXV (Victrola XXV).
