Columbia Eagle

The Columbia type "B" ("Eagle") Graphophone of 1897 was one of Thomas McDonald's finest achievements. A winning combination of simplicty and reliability, it would be copied repeatedly for the next ten years by firms the world over. It sold for $10.00 uncased, and for $12.00 in an oak "hand cabinet". It was sold with a 10" black conical horn, but could be equipped, as shown, with horns of larger dimension. The horn shown is Nickel plated.
