There were many Gramophones of this design, but this is probably the rarest of them all.
As far as I know it has never appeared in an HMV Sales catalogue, the only advertising would have been in the likes of the Gramophone Magazine. It was not manufactured until about May 1925, by the October of 1925 its successor the Model 103 was already in production.

The condition is excellent. The Soundbox (where the needle goes in) rubber gaskets that harden over time have been replaced. The case may have been refinished in a lighter Oak some many decades ago.


I have tried to describe the Gramophone accurately. However, it must be born in mind unlike many "Antiques" that have been safely stored against the ravages of time in a display cabinet; the Gramophone was a Domestic Appliance which was a main source of home entertainment.
Realistically the only Gramophones that won't show signs of age are over restored examples, or the reproduction models imported from the Far East.
