Rare 1910 Victor Victrola Xii Type A Phonograph Rca For Sale
THIS IS A VERY RARE AND BEAUTIFUL RESTORED VICTOR XII, SERIAL NO. 3696A. THE UNIT WAS COMPLETELY RESTORED ABOUT 10YRS AGO INCLUDING ALL HARDWARE THAT WAS ALL RE-PLATED IN 24K GOLD. EVERYTHING FUNCTIONS AND PLAYS BEAUTIFULLY. The XII was Victor's
first attempt at marketing a tabletop model with an enclosed horn, based on the
resounding success of the VV-XVI, Victor's first internal-horn floor model
phonograph. First released in the summer of
1909 with a price tag of $125.00, it failed to sell well. In comparison to the
large $200.00 XVI (Victor's only other internal horn
model at the time), the $75 price difference was not sufficient to attract less
affluent customers to purchase this machine.
The XII was discontinued after only one year of production. Due to their rarity and
relatively early manufacture, these machines are prized by collectors
today.I NO LONGER HAVE ROOM AND WOULD LIKE TO SEE THIS GO TO A GOOD HOME, I HAVE ON THIS sale. I WOULD ENCOURAGE ANYONE INTERESTED TO COME AND SEE IT IN PERSON. I PREFER NOT TO SHIP BUT I WILL SHIP, PROVIDED THE BUYER PAY THE ACTUAL PROFESSIONAL PACKAGING, SHIPPING AND INSURANCE COST. THIS IS A BEAUTIFUL VICTROLA AND NEED TO BE PACKED AND SHIPPED IN A SECURE AND SAFE WAY. IF YOU ARE NOT WILLING TO PAY THE THOSE COSTS PLEASE DON'T offer. CABINET HEIGHT - 15 3/8", CABINET WIDTH - 18 1/2", CABINET DEPTH - 22 1/2"
