DECCA "TRENCH" model 1 from 1925 in good condition. This type of gramophone uses "Bowl-in-lid" amplification by which sound is reflected forward from the lid. The deep lid contains a black metal bowl, "Dulciflex", which displays sound with a remarkable volume.

This design is called the "Trench" because during the 1st World War British troops were shipped with gramophones based on this design for use in the trenches.

The engine is "Swiss" made. Decca has never made their own engines or sound boxes, the Crescendo Soundbox is also made in Switzerland.

Dimensions: - 8" tall, 10.75" deep, 9.5" wide.

A very nice gramophone. Fully functional. Sound box Crescendo, with excellent tone and sound. Suitcase in very beautiful condition. Speed controller in working condition. Rotatable felt in good condition. Original handler

The chromed parts show signs of oxidation, otherwise in good working condition.
