Made also by Pathe, this "Sings Clear" cylinder phonograph can only play the Inter cylinders.  Without any decal on the cabinet or lid, it wears the Pathe identification engraved on the two rotating bars supporting the rod where rolls the horn support.  Usually equiped with a spinned aluminium horn as on the ad below, it is shown, here, with a hard to find blue horn with aluminum bell very similar to the red one of the Sonor.
