Early 20th Century Victor Talking Machine Company Type V2 Phonograph
Design Plus Gallery presents a Victor Talking Machine Company Type V2 Phonograph. The Victor Talking Machine Company was the largest and most successful manufacturer, which is good from a restoration standpoint because parts are still readily available, there were so many made. The company later became RCA. It was rich in entrepreneurial ideas and was always successful, unlike a lot of other brands. The quality of their materials and hardware was heads and tails above most. Victor really was a prime, quality company.Victor was founded around 1900 after some fits and starts. Eldridge Johnson was the founder of the company, and he puttered around with different ideas and designs. RCA bought them in October 1929, right before the crash. The item is functional and winds up. Does not come with records. Visible and minor patina + wear from age and usage.
