This phonograph has been bought, quite a while ago, at a Sotheby's auction.  The two other home made machines (2 & 3) which also came from England reinforce the fact that it is a British phonograph.  Like the (2), the flywheel of the handle comes from a sewing machine and the two are identical.  It has nice brass turned handle axis supports, the axis itself being conical.  There is an odd endgate and the brass reproducer is a copy of the Edison Standard speaker with recording and reproducing stylus.  The original board got with the machine being so pitiful has been replaced.
