Inexpensive Puck type machines were manufactured in Germany beginning around 1905. There were a number of variations of Puck machines, almost all employing a single spring motor and dropping the feed screw in favor of balancing a small horn upon the cylinder. The most commonly seen Puck design consisted of a trivet type base with lyre decoration, somewhat in the manner of the Columbia AP and AQ.
Puck machines were sold in large numbers on the continent, and were later sold in smaller numbers in the United States. The model depicted here was probably sold as a Puck Lohengrin. As the entire motor sat above the bedplate, the wooden case served solely as a decorative stand. There was also a lid for this machine, not shown in the images.
