You are offerding on a Victor Talking Machine
Company Victrola XI (aka “Victrola the 11th”) serial
number 538563 with a spring wound motor and a No. 2 sound box. Judging from its serial number and its sound box,
this particular machine left the Victor factory sometime between 1919 and 1920.
The most popular of all the floor model
Victrolas, the Victrola XI sold for the equivalent of over $1,879.00
in today’s dollars. (For more information
on the Victrola XI, read Look for the Dog – An Illustrated Guide
to Victor Talking Machines by Robert W. Baumbach.)
This nice example comes from a non-smoking household. The motor is in good working order and the No. 2 sound box was rebuilt about 10 years ago by the Victrola Repair Service in Saint Johnsbury, Vt. The cabinet dimensions are 42-15/16 inches high, 20” wide, and 23-1/16 deep. It weighs about 101 pounds and is fitted with casters. We’ve provided ample photo coverage of it, so please study the photos carefully as they are an important part of the sale description.
The winning buyer will also receive the original VTM cabinet key, an original copy of a Victrola XI instruction booklet, and four (4) unopened packets of “medium tone” steel needles.
This phonograph is being sold “as is” and has been priced to sell. It is available for pickup in Descanso, California, located about 40 miles east of San Diego and convenient to Interstate-8. Out-of-the-area buyers should consider contacting Craters and Freighters in San Diego and arranging for them to handle the pickup and shipping. ( won’t allow us to list their phone number, but you should be able to look it up on-line.)
