condition: good
make / manufacturer: Silvertone
model name / number: B-XVI
Up for sale is a very nice Silvertone model B-XVI, made in 1918. This was a very high-end model when it was new and features gold-plated hardware and well-built cabinet. It came with a powerful and quiet triple-spring motor, offering excellent performance for playing both 10 and 12 inch records.

The wood is in good shape, but could use some TLC if you really want to make this machine stand out. The original finish has alligatored, but will clean up nicely if you choose to do so. There are a few little trim pieces missing.

The motor and reproducer have been rebuilt and this phonograph plays as good as new! It has a very nice tone and is just a pleasure to listen to! Even the volume control knob (a rare feature on mechanical phonographs back in the day) works great! It will play about 3 sides of 10 inch records on one winding.

Records and needles will be included in the sale to get you started!
