  1. Past hour
  2. Here is a record not heard very often in The United States. The Third in a set of three released by Rex records in England to commemorate the Silver Jubilee of King George V in 1935. I find these records interesting. Perhaps not so much I would listen to them over and over. But, fun all the same. I imagine there are a few of you out there that like the history of the English Royals. And, likely some that don't care for it as well. If Brandon is listening, there ever bagpipes! Have fun and enjoy.

  5. Another nice video, Dan - - thanks for posting it! That dog sounds awfully real to me... George P.
  6. Here is an early Electrically recorded record by Arthur Pryor's Band from 1925. I think of his records in the earlier acoustic era, but this is a good one. It is a famous and classic record including whistling and barking by Margaret McKee and Billy Murray. I suppose that dog barking might actually be Nipper! Who Knows! 😜
  7. "On This Day in Phonographic History..." June 18, 1942: Died: Arthur Pryor, trombone virtuoso, bandleader, soloist with Sousa’s Band, prolific composer of band music, and recording artist. #antiquephonographsociety #phonograph #gramophone #antique
  8. I found it and am reading it now. Thanks George

    An interesting thing, I remember I once met it in San Francisco at the market, where the seller asked a fabulously low price for it, but I could not take it :C That was at 2011

    Nice video and you nailed it - having fun is what it is all about Bruce
  11. I have a few cylinder horns like that. We may never know... Whoever made it, yours on that Victor is a knockout. George P.
  12. My accessory Victor horn has no decals, stampings, or markings of any kind, nor any trace that any once existed. It's a mystery.

    Good point, that didn’t occur to me. I moved it to an area that can be viewed by the public.

    Thanks for the nice comments, fellows. If it isn't fun, what's the point of a hobby? George P.
  15. Rene, Does your beautiful blue flowered horn have the Aug. 22, 1905 date stamped near the small end? That's a good indication of a Tea Tray horn. Rod, I see several Tea Tray horn cranes in your first picture! That first one is hard to find - - and it's not surprising since it's so clunky. The September 2011 issue of the APS magazine has an article on Tea Tray horn cranes. I think you must have them all the models!
  16. Neil, There's an article on "Identifying Talking Machine Horns" in the December 2012 issue of the APS magazine. The section on Tea Tray shows the decals found on them, as well as the typical hanger.

    Nice to see the rare stuff I do not have and the more common that I do. I love all my machines equally. Enjoy them all immensely. Great video. Neil
  19. I may have missed it but how does one know if he has a tea tray horn. Is there a decal? Or the name some place on the horn or is it by design one can tell. (any examples if that is the case would be appreciated) I do not think I have any but would be interested in know how to tell for future reference. Neil
  20. Hello These records are outside the date range of our hobby but I didn't know any other place to really get information on them. If this post is not allowed please delete and accept my humble apologies. However I think others will find these records to be fascinating and a rather unique piece of Americana. I found these records in an antique store in Savannah, Ga around 2005. They stood out to me so I got them for that reasons. And I am glad I did for sure. These records were used by the Pyne Twins who were in the 1956 Ice Capades-https://www.pinterest.com/pin/67342956898628988/ These records were possibly their audition records or the records they used on the show. They are privately made records. Does anyone know how I can learn more about these? Thanks in advance
  21. Somewhat related, the crane on the Edison Home (foreground) is the first crane sold by TTC, Patent No. 763,096, filed 25 Sep, 1903, granted 21 Jun, 1904. The statue just behind with the white globe is an 1800’s natural-gas tavern/bar cigar lighter. The third horn is TTC, with intact decal. The red “Ring for Beer: bell in the foreground does not work in my house (for some reason), although it is loud enough.
  22. That is a stunner. Wow.... I'm not sure if this accessory Victor horn was made by Tea Tray or not. Any thoughts? I've owned this since 1962 and it's always been a favorite of mine.

    "Have fun." That says it all!
  24. Thanks, Fran! It's an oddity all right...
  25. Definitely my favorite of your horns George!
  26. While eating breakfast, it occurred to me that I'd be remiss if I didn't include one particular example in a discussion of Tea Tray horns. This one was made of heavy gauge brass, nickel plated, and decorated with pink roses. The shiny nickel plate makes photography tricky, so I have included three images. The last picture is the best.

    Very nice George.
  28. Bob, those Tea Tray horns with white roses on a black background get to me. The beautiful blending of greens on the leaves really pops on black. My very first phonograph horn (shown in the upper left of the image below) had this decoration, and it must have permanently affected me. Although in my mind there are prettier colors than black for a background, this combination has always struck me (at least since I was fourteen). Thanks for sharing yours! It looks great on that Monarch.
