Brunswick York Model Phonograph
Brunswick Spring Wound, York Model Phonograph and Accessories
This is a Brunswick York Model Phonograph with the console style cabinet. This dates from around 1922-1925. There is a crank on the side that winds a two spring motor. Some of the more expensive Brunswick models had 3 and 4 spring motors. As with most spring driven items, always leave the spring in an unwound state if it will be unused for any length of time. The brightwork on this one is nickel plate. This also features a counterbalanced lid and an auto stop feature at the end of the record. This came standard with the single Ultona reproducer and the double Utona reproducer as an extra cost piece. This phonograph has both, the single is shown in the photo. To clear up some confusion, the single Ultona reproducer played two types of records, the standard 78, with the straight needle and the Pathe style, with the sapphire ball needle. The double Ultona reproducer played 3 types, the 2 previously mentioned, and the Edison type, with the diamond tip needle. To choose the correct needle, you would rotate the reproducer on the arm to the proper position, each which had a detent.
Brunswick Phonograph Accessories
These are some Brunswick Phonograph accessories. The first is a Brunswick record index. As you collected records you would enter them in the index so that you could easily retrieve them from the correct record album. This dates from the same time and is in very good condition with some yellowing at the edges.
