Present in the 1911 catalog, this cylinder phonograph is typical of the cast iron base with the shape of a Lyra as made in so many different versions.  There are so many that it is difficult to know who made them, except is they wear, underneath, the G.C. initials of the factory as this one.  This base is plain and painted all black.  On all Puck and Kastenpuck, a special leveling screw helps to keep the cylinder surface horizontal as there is most of the time no feed screw.

The 1911 Georges Carette & Co, Nuremberg catalog shows a (never seen) version to play also the  French "Salon" Inter size cylinders.
