We are now offering this wonderful antique Columbia Phonograph Type Q Graphophone with a last patent date of 1897. The graphophone comes with the original wooden cover and horn. This piece was manufactured by the American Graphophone Co, New York, NY. The wooden cover is very nice and the grain looks great. The front of the cover has "Graphophone" written in beautiful black and gold letters on a gold ribbon-like design. Also written is "The Graphophone Patented May 4, 1886, Dec 27, 1887, April 3, 1888, June 10, 1890, Oct 15, 1894, March 20, 1897 Columbia Phonograph New York, London, Paris, Berlin." There is a very pretty floral accent on the bottom of the graphophone. The patent dates are also stamped into the graphophone. The horn is brass. There is a record included, which comes in a cardboard case. The case is very decorative, done in colors of cream with gold accents and red letters that read "Edison Record." There are several songs on the record, the first one being "Nearer My God to Thee." The cover does have some damage, the gears do not turn, and the needle is missing some parts needed to play a record. The graphophone measures 6 1/8" in height, 9 1/2" from side to side, and 6 1/4" from front to back. The cover is 7" in height, 10 3/8" from side to side, and 6 3/4" from front to back. The record cover is 4 1/2" in height, and 2 5/8" in diameter. The horn measures 13 3/4" in height, and 6 7/8 in diameter. Weight is 8 pounds.
