A flower-horn Victrola sitting on an upright floor model cabinet. The Victor Talking Machine Company made these phonographs from 1901 through 1929. The company's logo depicts a fox terrier named Nipper staring into the horn of a Berliner Gramophone. It's from a painting by Francis Barraud named "His Master's Voice." It is said that in real life the little dog would run to the horn everytime a recording of his deceased master's voice, Mark Barraud, was played. I found this particular unit at a farm in Flores, Uruguay.
