This is one of the very rare Thorens cylinder machines.  Its particularity is that it is as well a machine for right or left-handed owner, as the crank can be put at either end of the front rod, as shown on the left picture below.  The right picture shows the same kind of machine mounted on a reversible plank, as many French phonographs.
